Greenville, S.C. – April 1, 2008 - FuelCellSouth, the Fuel Cell Sector Marketing Initiative for the Southeastern United States announced today it's fuel cell powered lift and pallet truck market education program for manufacturers and distribution centers.

“Uninterrupted, round-the-clock operation. That’s the advantage that an electric lift or pallet truck equipped with a fuel cell power pack offers over a battery-powered unit.” said Tom Militello, Executive Director, FuelCellSouth Partners Forum, Inc. "We are launching an extensive market education program to showcase how fuel cell power packs can provide constant and abundant power, increased productivity, reduced refueling times, extended run-time and elimination of environmental disposal and acid spill issues for operations making extensive use of lift and pallet trucks."

This year, FuelCellSouth will feature presentations on fuel cell powered electric lift and pallet trucks at its annual conference in Greenville, SC. Attendees will hear information from equipment suppliers, distributors and operators about their “hands-on” experience with fuel cell powered material handling equipment in actual industrial and warehouse operations. Learn how fuel cell power backs can provide constant and abundant power, increased productivity, reduced refueling times, extended run-time and elimination of environmental disposal and acid spill issues.

"The FuelCellSouth Partners Forum provides an industry presentation format that showcases many commercial and municipal applications of fuel cells and helps foster collaboration at the local and regional levels," said Dr. John Van Zee, Director of the National Science Foundation Industry /University Collaborative Research Center for Fuel Cells at University of South Carolina.
