Pacific Fuel Cell powers up nanotubes

March 28, 2003 — Pacific Fuel Cell Corp. (PFCE) has developed a process to grow carbon nanotubes on carbon cloth paper for micro fuel cells, according to a company news release.

The Tustin, Calif.-based firm said researchers at University of California, Riverside, discovered the process, which uses chemical vapor deposition. PFCE signed a contract with the university to research and develop a fuel cell prototype based on the firm’s carbon nanotechnology.

Low-cost nanotube production is a key part of PFCE’s plan to develop micro fuel cell technology to replace batteries in laptops, cell phones and other consumer electronics, the release said.
