Toyota Tsusho Corporation Signs an Agreement for Exclusive Agency in Japan with Oorja Protonics, Inc. to Expand DMFC Business in Japan
Feb 25 14
Toyota Tsusho Corporation has signed an agreement for exclusive agency in Japan with Oorja Protonics, Inc. to expand the DMFC business in Japan. By promoting Oorja Protonics DMFCs systems, Toyota Tsusho is aiming to introduce a new type of electric power supply into Japan. The company will enter Japan's fuel cell market with the exhibit and the launch of DMFC sales at the FC EXPO 2014. DMFCs use easy-to-transport and handle methanol as a fuel source and generate electricity from the chemical reaction inside the fuel cells. Logistics networks for methanol have already been established in many global markets. DMFCs can therefore be introduced at a lower cost than hydrogen fuel cells, which have gained significant attention in recent years, and are expected to become a stable source of electric power. Technology from Oorja Protonics feature high power generation efficiency and the company's products are already being used in a wide range of applications in the U.S. with high customer satisfaction. In addition to urban environments with an established power infrastructure, the products are being actively promoted in suburban areas without an infrastructure to meet demand for stable power supplies.
