US/China Energy and Environmental Technology
Center (EETC) is a non-profit organization
funded by US Department of Energy (DOE). EETC¡¯s Mission
is to promote the efficient, responsible production
and utilization of clean energy, and to encourage environmental
performance, while improving the quality of life in
U.S. and China. EETC¡¯s major objectives are (1) to nurture
trust and goodwill for the benefit of both the US and
China. (2) to promote US clean energy and environmental
technology in China, (3) to identify profitable projects
for US businesses, particularly small and medium size
businesses. Through the introduction by DOE, Powerzinc
and EETC has formed a partnership in March 2002 to jointly
promote Powerzinc¡¯s new environment-friendly zinc-air
fuel technology in U.S. and China. An immediate goal
is to demonstrate Powerzinc¡¯s products as the most practical,
near term fuel cell technology for electric vehicles
in the world. In order to achieve its missions in China,
EETC has decided to establish a new office in Shanghai
at Powerzinc Electric (Shanghai), Inc.¡¯s facility.
Powerzinc was founded in California.
The company is dedicated to: (1) research, development
and manufacturing of advanced, environment-friendly,
zero emission Zinc-Air Fuel Cell; and (2) providing
a fuel cell energy service platform with its initial
market focus on electric vehicle applications using
Zinc-Air Fuel Cells. Powerzinc¡¯s products and its innovative
refuel service concept have practically solved all the
major problems of existing batteries for electric vehicles.
Powerzinc has invested and established a production
& service facility in Shanghai in 1999 and the facility
had already started commercial production at the end
of 2002. At the upcoming event, we will introduce and
demonstrate Powerzinc¡¯s outstanding achievements in
the zinc-air fuel cell technology.
The event will take place at Powerzinc¡¯s Shanghai factory
at 1200 Hua Jing Road, Xu Hui District and will start
at 9:00am local time on March 6, 2002.
