Current Methanol Fuel Cell Customers Since their 1 st PO, Nissan has since submitted 2 more PO’s for a total of 84 units. By using the Model III OorjaPac™ Fuel Cell, Nissan has been able to “right size” their fleet, decrease the number of Fuel Cells purchased in latest PO and increase productivity. All part of the McDonalds Family 4 PO’s in the last 8 months GSF has converted their entire DC in Lemont, IL. Martin Brower converted their entire Stockton, CA. DC Earp converted their entire Kansas City, MO. DC
Define A Fuel Cell? A fuel cell (FC) is a device that combines Fuel (Hydrogen, Methanol, Natural Gas) and Oxygen in an electrochemical process which generates electricity along with some heat and water as byproducts. Difference Between Hydrogen & Methanol Fuel Cell? Both take Hydrogen & combine with Oxygen to generate electrons. Both produce heat and H2O as a ByProduct. Methanol also produces CO2 (8 – 10 Men Breathing) Hydrogen Fuel Cell has a tank to store H2O byproduct and has to be emptied when refueling. Methanol does not.
What is OorjaPac ™ ? What Is OorjaPac™ ● Oorja has pioneered the development and commercialization of an Ultra-Powerful Alcohol Fuel Cell solution for the material handling industry in US and UK. ● OorjaPac ™ is a Safe, Cost Effective, “Green” on-board battery charger for material handling vehicles. It trickle-charges the vehicles battery while the vehicle is operating or while it is parked and periodically equalizes the batteries. OorjaPac ™ is capable of charging 24v, 36v & 48v in - 20ºF to 110ºF. ● The OorjaPac ™ solution completely eliminates the need for battery-swapping or rapid charging, allowing customers to economize their fleets.

Anheuser-Bush Rejects $1.1 Mil Fuel Cell Grant Anheuser-Busch Reject $1.1 mil Fuel Cell Grant Source : PAT FERRIER Coloradian The Anheuser-Busch brewery in Fort Collins has rejected a $1.1 million experimental energy grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to replace lead-acid batteries on its fleet of forklifts with cleaner fuel cell packs. The grant, announced a year ago, was part of $41.9 million in federal stimulus funds awarded to 13 companies to develop and deploy fuel cells. Implementing the technology in A-B’s forklifts would have provided a “real-world” look at how fuel cells perform with daily use. Grant recipients were expected to match the DOE funds, and A-B indicated the additional costs were too high. “ A thorough project analysis revealed additional costs, and we decided to dedicate our resources to other clean- energy projects that have better, more efficient use in our business,” Kevin Fahrenkrog, A-B’s Fort Collins manager, wrote in an e-mail. The company did not respond to further questions about the grant. Fahrenkrog cited A-B’s other clean-energy projects, including installation of a molecular sieve, which increases ethanol, a byproduct of the brewing process, to a higher proof, allowing it to be directly blendable with E85 flex fuel, selling fuel crops grown at its Nutri-Turf farm to a local ethanol plant and decreasing water use by almost 32 percent. Fahrenkrog said the efforts have contributed to a 27 percent decline in fuel use in the past five years. Department of Energy spokeswoman Tiffany Edwards said in a voicemail message that during “negotiations” with A-B, the company decided not to go forward with the grant and referred all other questions to A-B. Fuel cells promise to provide green energy storage for everything from electronic gadgets to cars, but getting the right chemistry and keeping the manufacturing costs low are tricky to do, the DOE said in announcing the grants in April 2009. Fuel cell companies have found some success deploying their products for back-up power systems and industrial equipment such as forklifts, the DOE said. So the government is using the $41.9 million to support those May 29, 2010 - 1:08 PM
Hydrogen vs. Methanol 3 4 NFPA (Fire) Rating 0= no special hazard; 4 is severe hazard Indoors or Outdoors Always Outdoor—Not possible to store indoors Location of the Refueling Station and Fuel Storage Plastic (same as gasoline) or metal tank High pressure metal cylinders or Cryogenic containers Storage Containers Liquid— Non-pressurized and stored at atmospheric Compressed —Under >5000 psi Storage and Packaging Conditions Liquid Gaseous---lightest gas in the world State of the fuel Methanol Hydrogen
Cost Of Fuel:Run Time Hydrogen = $22.00 for 24 hours run time Methanol = $8.24 for 24 hours run time Hydrogen is 266% more expensive than Methanol per hour of run time
Cost Of OorjaPac™ Vs. Hydrogen Fuel Cell Hydrogen = $17,500 - 35,000 Per Fuel Cell Methanol = $25,000 – 50,000 Per Fuel Cell Hydrogen Refuel Station is 43x More Expensive Than The OorjaRig™ Hydrogen Refuel Station = $1,500,000.00 Methanol Refuel Station = $35,000.00
Refuel Time of OorjaPac™ Vs. Hydrogen Fuel Cell Hydrogen Fuel Cell Refuel Time = 2 – 5 Minutes OorjaPac™ = 30 – 45 Seconds The OorjaPac™ refuels 94% faster than Hydrogen Fuel Cells do. 42 Hrs. per year w/ Hydrogen vs. 6.9 Hrs. w/ Methanol

Time Line Hydrogen Between 2002 – 2010 roughly 800 units were sold and delivered. Methanol Between 2009 – 2010 approximately 600 units were sold and delivered. There are active PO’s for over 300 units for 2011. Hydrogen has averaged 8 units per month sold, Methanol has averaged 50 units per month sold! That’s a 600% acceptance rate of Methanol over Hydrogen!
