About CMR Fuel Cells plc
CMR Fuel Cells plc is a high growth, UK AIM-listed developer of fuel cell 'stacks' and systems for portable and small stationary power generation applications. The Company is targeting the consumer electronics industry where there is growing demand for new power solutions which are longer running than today's Lithium batteries.
This demand is being driven by the increasing power requirements of portable electronics devices which have outgrown incremental improvements in the performances of traditional batteries. As a result, consumer frustration with short 'run-time', 'return to mains' recharging and questionable battery safety is compelling the electronics industry to develop and deploy suitable alternatives for power delivery.
Originally founded in 1998 with the objective of transforming proven space and defense technologies from NASA and the Department of Defense into hardware and software solutions that solve today's complex problems, VIASPACE benefits from important patent and software licenses from Caltech, which manages NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. In addition, VIASPACE has recently acquired a profitable company, which also has a license to grow a fast-growing grass for animal feed and as a feedstock for biofuels.
