August 23, 2002 by Jeff Shepard

Pacific Fuel Cell Corp. (Tustin, CA) announced that it has signed an agreement with the University of California to research and build a fuel cell prototype based upon Pacific Fuel Cell's proprietary carbon nanotechnology. A major purpose of the project is to reduce the amount of platinum needed for the fuel cell's operation. Matching funds will be provided by the State of California.

Pacific Fuel Cell President George Suzuki stated, "This research is planned as the first step in an aggressive plan to position Pacific Fuel Cell in the forefront of a tidal wave that will carry fuel cells to prominence as the major, non-polluting, energy source."
