Does the product, more specifically the fuel cell need to a stationary power, portable power or a motive power>
Andy ChuThere is no requirement for the product to either be a stationary or portable power source. However, as a motive power source (or if I understand you correctly, a power source used for direct propulsion), I'm not sure. I'd love to see an example to help make that determination. Feel free to contact me directly at andy@patexia.com!

Andy ChuHi Roland! Thanks for the question again. I’ve taken a closer look at the subject matter and have a more detailed answer for you. We’re interested in products that employ a hydrogen gas reaction. However, we are interested in products that rely on fuel sources such as methane that are used to first produce the hydrogen either within the fuel cell reaction chamber (as with some solid oxide fuel cells) or in a separate reaction chamber on or near the product. Hope that clears up matters, and we’ve created a contest update to help clarify the issue. Thanks again!

Is there any particular date specificity for this contest,I mean could we have the need to restrict ourselves to date while searching the product?????
Andy ChuHi Myra. There is no date restriction on this contest. As long as the product is currently commercially used in the United States. Thanks for the question!
