Ballard Power Systems (BLD on Toronto Stock Exchange and BLDPF on NASDAQ) THIS IS ONE THE MOST SIGNIFICANT AND EXCITING TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENTS OF THE 21 CENTURY.

"Ballard Power Systems Inc. is the world leader in proton exchange membrane fuel cell power systems, an environmentally-clearn technology for converting fuels such as natural gas, methanol and hydrogen into electricity. Leading manufacturing compaies such as Daimler-benz, General Motors, Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft, New Flier Industries and others are using Ballard's proprietary technolgy to develop zero-emission vehicles and clean stationary power plants. In 1998 consumers around the world will begin using these products.

The Ballard Fuel Cell is changing theway the world meets its growing needs for clean and efficient power"

"While the Ballard Fuel Cell Engin uses a fundamentally different method of generating power, it retains many of the attributes of a conventional engine. Like trandtional internal combusion engines, the fuel cell engine combines fuel and air to create power. Fuel is stored in an external tank, which can be quickly and easily refilled providing the vehicle with the required range. Both engines produce heat which can be used to warm the passenger compartment.

Combustion engines generate power by burning fuels... The combustion process consumes non-renewable fuel and creates harmful pollutants.

The Ballard Fuel Cell Engine, in contrast, generates electricity through an electrochemical process that creates NO pollution. This electricity is supplied to electric motors which power the vehicle."

The Fuel Cell combines the best features of a battery powered vehicle - zero emission, high effeciency, quiet operation and long life --- with (and unlike batteries)the long range and fast re-fueling of a gasoline vehicle. This combination makes it one of the most attactive and important transportation technologies of the 21 centure. (Source" The Promise of Fuel Cell Vehicles. Insititute of Transportation Studies, University of California)
