Man I hope there's no fraudulent info on these new technologies just to get us to buy them. I still can't determine if the energy used to extract bio-diesel is less then the energy it gives, per unit.

Intelligent Energy and Suzuki announce new partnership

Intelligent Energy and the Suzuki Motor Corporation announced today that they are working together on the development of prototype hydrogen fuel cell motorcycles using Intelligent Energy’s advanced fuel cell power systems.

6th February 2007
Intelligent Energy will employ its proprietary PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) technology to deliver to Suzuki a series of advanced, compact and lightweight fuel cell systems, which are intended to become an integral part of Suzuki’s future motor products. These fuel cell systems will demonstrate class-leading fuel cell performance under typical automotive environmental conditions.

“This is an exciting time for Intelligent Energy’, commented Intelligent Energy’s Chief Executive Dr Henri Winand. ‘As a company, we have a range of leading clean technologies based on proprietary fuel cell and fuel processing systems. We work with key partner companies to integrate our systems into their products. It is well known that Japanese companies are particularly sophisticated and knowledgeable when it comes to fuel cell-based products. We are therefore delighted to announce our new partnership with the Suzuki Motor Corporation. This is an endorsement of Intelligent Energy’s technology and of our ability to forge partnerships with leading industrial partners to accelerate the development and commercialisation of fuel cell-powered products.’

Intelligent Energy’s unique and proprietary PEM fuel cell designs are based on the use of thin metallic bipolar plates, which make the fuel cell extremely compact and well-suited to mass manufacture. In addition, Intelligent Energy’s fuel cell systems are designed to be simple, robust and cost-effective solutions, which are especially attractive for automotive applications.

Intelligent Energy has been active in the Japanese market for some years. It exhibits at the FC EXPO, the International Hydrogen and Fuel Cell exhibition, held at Tokyo Big Site and will do so again in February 2007 as it aims to expand its development of fuel cell-powered products for the Japanese market.
About the Suzuki Motor Corporation:

The Suzuki Motor Corporation is one of the rare manufacturers in the world to produce both motorcycles and automobiles. The company designs and manufactures passenger cars, commercial vehicles, motorcycles, ATVs and outboard motors. Its motorcycle products range from scooters to large motorcycles to meet the diverse demands of its customers around the world. Suzuki’s automobile business has the largest share of the Japanese mini car market and develops a range of unique products such as SUVs and mini-vans for the global market, focusing on the compact car market in response to increasing concerns for the good of the environment.

The company vigorously promotes technical cooperation through numerous joint ventures overseas and its main production facilities are located in 23 countries and areas around the world, enabling Suzuki to operate as a global organisation serving 192 countries and areas. Suzuki first began fuel cell research with GM in 2001, with the joint development of four-wheeled FCVs (fuel cell vehicles). So far, three Japanese mini-car FCVs have been developed for use of public roads and the joint development with GM continues with the aim of further commercializing the vehicle.
