Canada and DuPont Team Up on Fuel Cell Development

Briefly Noted

2002-02-27 [SolarAccess.com] Canada has entered into a $19 million (US$11.8 million) Technology Partnerships Canada (TPC) with DuPont Canada Inc., to research fuel cell technology. The initiative is expected to create 500 jobs and includes a contribution from the government of Canada of $30 million to $40 million (US$18.7 million to $25 million) in research and development activity. This TPC will focus on the development of advanced fuel cell components at DuPont’s research and development center in Kingston. One of the project’s key goals is to introduce innovations that will reduce the cost of manufacturing fuel cell systems, making the technology more economically viable as an alternative, clean-energy source for a range of applications including cell phones and computers.
