SymPowerco Acquires Methanol Concentration Sensing Tech

June 27, 2008

Aims to include the sensor in the company's flowing electrolyce direct methanol fuel cell control system.

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire) - SymPowerco Corp. (PINKSHEETS: SYMW) CEO John Davenport today announces that the company has acquired the exclusive rights to a methanol concentration sensing technology that will complement the company's Flowing Electrolyte Direct Methanol Fuel Cell (FE DMFC).

The Methanol Sensor is an important component for the stable and efficient operation of the FE DMFC and, as such, the sensor will form an integral part of the FE DMFC's control system.

The SymPowerco Methanol Sensor is robust, sensitive and has a fast response time to changing methanol concentrations. In addition, the sensor has a linear response throughout broad ranges of methanol concentrations and pH values.

Although the Methanol Sensor has been developed primarily for the FE DMFC's control system, SymPowerco intends to develop expanded markets for the versatile sensor.

The Methanol Sensor forms part of SymPowerco's expanding suite of Intellectual Properties that the company believes will lead to the realization of its primary goal, to bring to market the first truly portable and practical hybrid electric power systems that do not rely on plug-in battery chargers or fossil fuels.
