Dr. Christopher D’Couto, NEAH’s CEO, said.

This is a great opportunity to help reduce pollution in one of the earth’s most populated areas, as NEAH fuel cells operate in both aerobic and anaerobic manner. Our micro fuel cells may eventually replace batteries for most uses.

We welcome NEAH’s technology as a valuable aspect of our goal to help eliminate the levels of air and noise pollution, which can be contained by the introduction and use of electric and hybrid-powered vehicles for short distance transportation in our cities, towns and villages.

NEAH uses a unique, patented, silicon-based design for its micro fuel cells that enable higher power densities, lower cost and compact form-factors.
