Consumers Demand Environmentally Friendly Cars and Automakers Respond with Electric, Plug-in Hybrids & Flex-Fuel ‘Green’ Vehicles

RenewableEnergyStocks.com – Issues of Global Warming, Fuel Prices and Energy Independence Drive Demand for Cleantech Vehicles

www.RenewableEnergyStocks.com, a leading investor and industry portal for the renewable energy sector, reviews the momentum surrounding the green car industry as global warming, costly fuel prices and the need for energy independence drives demand. Alternative transportation companies such as electric car developer and distributor ZAP (OTCBB: ZAAP) with current electric models on the market today, and ethanol producer Green Plains Renewable Energy (NASDAQ: GPRE), work to capitalize on consumer demands for cleaner vehicles and fuels. With the shift towards green cars taking hold, automakers such as Honda, General Motors, Toyota and others are stepping up efforts for further research and development in this area.

As the auto industry faces recent slipping sales, clean energy vehicles are catching the attention of consumers looking for efficiency and environmentally friendly alternatives, giving manufacturers a new direction for growth. The momentum behind green cars is a reaction to a variety of factors such as fuel prices despite current declines, environmental issues such as greenhouse gas emissions and global national energy security concerns.

This week many new clean energy vehicles are being introduced at the Los Angeles Auto Show, a platform for the unveiling of current and future alternative vehicles. Creating a buzz were displays of plug-in hybrids, which use electric motors with a gasoline engine as a backup, and electric vehicles that run entirely on electricity. Also in the mix were natural gas, ethanol and biodiesel vehicles. Another event, the AltCars Expo this weekend in Santa Monica, is shaping up to be the one of the premiere events for alternative fuel vehicles, and many of the new models and concepts will be present.

Recently, major automakers Toyota, Honda, General Motors and Nissan revealed a future that includes the production of various clean energy models. General Motors CEO Rick Wagoner has announced GM’s plans to develop a plug-in hybrid for its Saturn Vue Green Line SUV, but with no specific date for production revealed. General Motors has also unveiled the concept behind the Hummer “O2” which converts carbon dioxide to oxygen using algae-filled body panels.

General Motors is also focusing on cars that run on ethanol (E85) as part of their overall corporate environmental strategy moving forward. With ethanol becoming more widely available, as more producers such as Green Plains Renewable Energy (NASDAQ: GPRE) bring plant production online, these flex-fuel vehicles offer automakers viable near term opportunities while they continue to develop their next generation of green cars.

Hyundai is committing research efforts to hydrogen-powered fuel cells and vehicles that run on clean diesel as well as gas-electric hybrids. Honda is also looking at fuel cells with plans for hydrogen-powered sedans for 2008. Toyota Motor Corp, the largest seller of traditional hybrids, is another major automaker talking about developing plug-in models.

While many companies pursue the plug-in hybrid models, full electric vehicles are rapidly grabbing industry attention. While there are very few publicly owned companies currently offering mass-produced electric cars, one private firm Tesla Motors is showcasing its new Roadster prototype, planned for limited production as early as 2007, but with a price tag of $100,000USD. Nissan has plans for a 125-mile range all-electric car, but plans for production are targeted for 2010.

Electric car manufacturer and distributor ZAP (OTCBB: ZAAP) has a jump on the market with the only mass-produced and affordable electric car available for sale today. ZAP’s XEBRA city-car and truck is currently on sale through dealerships in Los Angeles for approximately $10,000USD. With most automakers looking several years down the road for market entry of most plug-in hybrids and electric models, ZAP appears well positioned to fill today’s consumer demands.

As a sign of things to come Yahoo! has created a special feature within Yahoo! Autos dedicated to green cars including ratings, technological overviews as well as community information and news pointing towards further validation of the potential behind the green car market.

New Featured Alternative Transportation Technology Companies Reduce Green House Gas Emissions and Address Global Warming

New Featured Alternative Transportation Technology Companies Reduce Green House Gas Emissions and Address Global Warming

RenewableEnergyStocks.com – Innovative Transportation Designs See Strong Domestic Demand and Global Market Opportunity within India and China

POINT ROBERTS, WA and DELTA, BC – November 15, 2006, http://www.renewableenergystocks.com/ and http://www.environmentstocks.com/, leading investor and industry portals for the renewable energy and cleantech sector, announce advanced alternative transportation developers ZAP (OTCBB: ZAAP) and Rotoblock Corporation (OTCBB: ROTB) as new featured companies. With a focus on reducing harmful emissions and increasing efficiency as they continue to develop and refine their technology offerings, both ZAP and Rotoblock offer clean tech alternatives for consumer vehicles.

With the recent U.S. election resulting in the Democratic Party winning control of Congress, many expect that issues such as reducing green house gas emissions and strengthening energy independence will become even greater legislative priorities moving forward. With the majority of the oil used in the United States being attributed to the transportation sector, alternative clean transportation technology has become a priority for protecting the environment, lowering energy prices and reducing the nation’s dependence on foreign oil.

Despite the recent decline in gasoline prices, fuel costs remain high, which continues to drive the demand for high efficiency and cost effective vehicles. Providing consumers with alternatives is ZAP! (Zero Air Pollution®) (OTCBB: ZAAP), a developer of advanced transportation vehicles such as electric, fuel cell and hybrid cars, in addition to electric bicycles, scooters and seascooters. ZAP is the only company to market and sell their electric vehicles online, enabling them to take advantage of the global market for clean alternatives. According to the Company, ZAP vehicles can reduce CO2 emissions by more than 90 percent compared to internal combustion vehicles, even counting the emissions from fossil-fueled power plants.

“We believe electricity is the fuel of the future. With electricity to power our transportation, our world can tap into renewable resources like hydroelectric, solar, wind, or geothermal power, resources that lessen our environmental footprint. Furthermore, studies show that millions of electric vehicles can recharge at night using existing surplus electrical generation, a vast, virtually untapped resource,” describes ZAP Chief Executive Officer, Steven Schneider.

Rotoblock Corporation (OTCBB: ROTB), a technology development company specializing in advanced propulsion systems, is focused on the continued development and improvement of its patented energy efficient and environmentally friendly, Oscillating Piston Engine (OPE), which releases significantly reduced emissions into the atmosphere even with regular fuels.
In addition, the Rotoblock engine is up to 50% lighter than traditional combustion engines, and is simpler to assemble, maintain and repair, making it a highly adaptable design for a wide variety of uses and sizes. The Company’s strategy is to continue to develop this proprietary technology to pursue licensing opportunities with particular focus on satisfying market needs within India and China where infrastructures are not yet fully developed, and the ease of maintenance and repair of the Oscillating Piston Engine will be a key advantage.
This past summer, Rotoblock signed a development and license agreement with Brazilian automotive company OBVIO! Automotoveiculos S.A., for the development and incorporation of a more compact OPE for use with various OBVIO! models. The terms of the agreement provides Rotoblock with $5,000,000 million paid through a royalty structure on units sold. OBVIO! is aiming to incorporate the Rotoblock engine into an ethanol hybrid drive train.

ZAP! is the exclusive North American distributor of OBVIO! alternative vehicles, which will be coming to market in 2008, complimenting the Company’s existing portfolio of electric and hybrid transportation technology.

Green Building Support from the Insurance Industry Aims to Reduce Environmental Risks from Global Warming

Green Building Support from the Insurance Industry Aims to Reduce Environmental Risks from Global Warming
EnvironmentStocks.com Reviews Efforts to Improve Safety of Coastal, Flood and Fire-Prone Areas by Minimizing Risks of Climate Change

POINT ROBERTS, Wash., DELTA, B.C., October 25, 2006 - www.EnvironmentStocks.com (ES) an investor and industry news portal for the cleantech sector, provides insight into the growing support for ‘green’ technology by the insurance arena. Insurers are showing new strategic directions as they focus on reducing the risks associated with climate change in hopes of minimizing the occurrence and impact of natural disasters such as fires, floods, hurricanes etc. By reducing harmful greenhouse emissions and thus minimizing global warming, insurers are hoping to minimize losses, but also establish new revenue channels. The green building arena and its participants such as environmentally friendly fire resistant building materials manufacturer International Barrier Technology Inc. (OTCBB: IBTGF - TSXV: IBH), are looking to benefit from the additional support of this sector, which is considered to be a driving factor towards future market growth.

Climate change poses significant risks across the United States, the consequences of which are often felt in coastal, flood-prone and fire-prone areas, through escalating degrees of natural disasters. According to a report from CERES, a coalition of investment funds, environmental organizations and other public interest groups, 2005 realized near $80 billion worldwide in insured weather-related catastrophe losses.

Historically, the insurance industry has been pivotal in reducing the risks and improving standards in fire and auto safety, as well as earthquakes, making their work to minimize the threats associated with global warming a logical and productive extension of their loss prevention efforts.

In addition, while climate change poses challenges and potential threats, significant business opportunities have also been created. One area in particular that will benefit from the support from the insurance arena is the green building sector. Green building techniques represent major steps towards reducing the harmful impacts on the environment caused by traditional energy generation and building operations, and insurance providers are beginning to reward businesses that incorporate these techniques. This in turn bodes well for the technology providers who are already seeing considerable growth in the number of builders incorporating green building practices and products into their projects.

Fireman’s Fund Insurance recently announced new coverage aimed at promoting green building with the introduction of Certified Green Building Replacement and Green Upgrade products. While conventional policies cover building restoration to its original condition, Fireman’s Fund is now providing products that will enable commercial property owners and managers to rebuild and replace using green alternatives.

By working closely with the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED program and the Green Building Initiative’s Green Globes program, Fireman’s Fund Insurance hopes to align their coverage with these key certification processes.

One of the consequences associated with climate change is the growing incidence of fires resulting from warmer weather and ensuing droughts. International Barrier Technology (OTCBB: IBTGF; TSXV: IBH), a developer of environmentally friendly fire resistant building materials has seen first hand the increased focus on fire protection, but also the growth within the building industry for environmentally safe products. Having the insurance industry providing further support for green building products will no doubt boost demand as the insurers put their climate strategies to work.

“Historically, building practices have been dictated primarily by Model Building Codes, such as the International Building Code (IBC), which is administered all over the US by the International Code Council”, reports Dr. Michael Huddy, President of International Barrier Technology. “Recently, however, insurance companies have taken on a more active role in specifying building practices that may be even more stringent and demanding than that referenced in building codes, especially in areas that are prone to natural disaster such as hurricanes or wildfires. While this has been done primarily to help insurance companies minimize their risk when they offer policies in areas that are prone to greater loss of property and life, it may also help direct the building industry in ways that in the long run will help mitigate further climatic change.”

Insurance giant, American International Group, Inc, (AIG) has also proclaimed its focus on reducing the impacts of global warming, but identifies climate change mitigation as a strategy for generating additional revenue rather than merely a loss reduction technique. Through its various divisions AIG plans on investing in projects, and technologies that contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, which are considered to be the major cause of global warming.

As the benefits of clean energy and environmentally friendly products and technology continue to represent viable solutions for reducing damage to the environment, it has also become a loss prevention and revenue producing strategy for insurers and businesses. With natural disasters continuing to pose serious threats financially and physically, it is anticipated that the support from insurers for reducing harmful emissions will grow even further.

Turning Power Plant Challenges into Clean Technology Opportunities

Turning Power Plant Challenges into Clean Technology Opportunities

RenewableEnergyStocks.com™ Looks at Water and Renewable Energy Technology Companies Providing Solutions to the Impacts of Fossil Fuel-Fired Plants

POINT ROBERTS, WA and DELTA, BC – October 5, 2006 - www.RenewableEnergyStocks.com (RES) and www.Water-Stocks.com (WS), leading investor and industry portals for the renewable energy and water sectors, look at how alternative energy and water technology offer viable and marketable solutions to the environmental impacts that stem from fossil fuel-fired power plants. Working to restore balance and turn power generation challenges into opportunities are clean energy companies Beacon Power Corp, XsunX, Inc. and NRG Energy, Inc. with ITT Corporation and Hendrx Corp providing solutions to protect our water quality and supply.

From a stock market perspective, while the demand for alternative sources of power and energy remains very strong as fuel prices and geopolitical tensions remain volatile, many companies within the renewable energy arena have seen their stock price decline significantly over the past several months. Short term, despite current market complacency, we may see an immediate spike as a result of a rise in oil prices or a power grid failure. Long term the potential for growth is supported by the constant flow of investments into the clean tech space and the continued presence of market drivers.

Evidence of the downward pressure felt by many alternative energy companies is seen through the movement in stock value of the portfolio that comprises the Distributed Energy Stock Index (‘DESI’), which is made up of 41 stocks whose primary focus is distributed energy and technology solutions. Despite the declines, the existing market drivers and solid demand is believed to bode well for early 2007 performance. As Mr. Jamie Wimberly, Managing Partner and CEO of the Distributed Energy Financial Group, LLC states, “The DESI (and the sector using the DESI as a proxy) is slowly gaining ground again after a nasty second quarter. Comparing where we are today with this point in 2005, you will notice a possible pattern of slow growth in Q3 and Q4. If this pattern holds there is potential for rapid expansion in Q1 2007.”

However, as the risks associated with traditional power production become more evident, clean energy technology in water and renewable energy has gained considerable industry momentum. Tom Djokovich, CEO of XsunX, Inc. (OTCBB: XSNX), developer of advanced manufacturing systems and cell structures for solar energy, describes, “We are in a global marketplace and there are different needs to be addressed. For example, in the United States, making renewable power part of our energy solution is becoming increasingly important. We have large legacy power stations where infrastructure remains, yet we can see they are bending and cracking. We have seen a keen awareness that our continued use of existing fossil-based power sources have actually paid for and supported hostile forces that have instigated national security issues, including terrorist attacks.”

According to Gene Hunt, Director of Corporate Communications for Beacon Power Corporation, a flywheel energy storage technology developer now aiming at the grid frequency regulation market, there are several key factors surrounding our existing power system which are creating opportunities for clean energy industry participants. “The market is currently being driven by a) the ongoing deregulation of the grid's operating regions, allowing third parties to provide ancillary services such as frequency regulation, b) the expected continued rising cost of fossil fuels like oil and natural gas (which form the cost basis for conventional regulation service providers), and c) the increasing demand for electricity, which in turn drives increased need for regulation.”

NRG Energy, Inc. (NYSE: NRG) follows a multi-fuel, multi-region business model which has led the Company to the establishment of a truly diversified energy portfolio. Thad Hill, Executive Vice President, Corporate Business Development and Strategic Planning for NRG Energy, explains, “We believe that the United States is going to need a lot of investments to meet its power and energy needs. In light of this we launched an infrastructure development plan to be rolled out over the next ten years to help meet the nation’s demands. We believe a broad multi-fuel based re-powering program is needed to meet the growing energy needs. As a result our plan includes gas, clean coal, wind as well as nuclear.”

Traditional power plants and their reliance on water for cooling have contributed to escalating supply shortages, and water contamination, escalating the demand for technological solutions. As George Solymar, CEO of Hendrx Corp (OTCBB: HDRX), explains, “The increasing use of water for electric power and other uses, such as agriculture and industry, puts a tremendous strain on the availability of potable drinking water for human consumption. Drinking water is becoming scarce on a global scale. This scarcity continues to get worse with the new emerging industry giants gobbling up huge quantities of water to feed their hunger for energy.”

“Hendrx’s AWG technology takes the water vapors right out of the air. Using our devices, a consumer is at the front of the line as far as water consumption is concerned. He does not have to compete with commercial interests. He is essentially tapping a cloud,” adds Solymar.

ITT Corporation (NYSE: ITT), a global leader in the transport, treatment and control of water, and wastewater, providing a variety of technologies for power plants to help reduce water contamination and facilitate water efficiency, sees the mindset of most modern utilities changing to that of being concerned about environmental impacts. “Be it for their own environmental consciousness or the fact that they are being driven this way by local regulations, the tide is changing,” states Bjorn VonEuler, Director of Corporation Communications.

The contest was designed to give investors and industry an opportunity to become educated in green technology. The ultimate greentech investor winner, Russ Michaud, was a long term follower of alternative energy stocks and a shareholder in sponsoring company ZAP® www.zapworld.com (NYSE Arca:ZP). He bet his virtual money and holdings on the stock he knew so well.
The GreenTechInvestor.com challenge was designed to give investors and industry an opportunity to become educated in green technology and learn about the current list of public plays in the sector. “I was already interested in alternative energy due to my concerns for our environment. What I learned specifically from the Green Energy Stock Challenge contest was that there are a lot more companies in this field than I initially thought. I was amazed at all of the smaller companies working on alternative energy,” describes contest winner Russ Michaud.
The contest started June 19th and closed on August 18, 2006. The contest started investors with $200,000 in virtual dollars to invest in green companies of choice from a list provided by RenewableEnergyStocks.com™. The stock list included a cross section of public companies trading on OTC, AMEX, NASDAQ, NYSE as well as TSX.
Revealing his contest tactics Mr. Michaud explains, “My winning strategy keyed on playing the smaller 'penny stocks' and I read up on and learned a lot about these companies after seeing them in stock list provided. There are a lot of approaches to alternative energy and I think I traded in most of them during the game: geothermal, hydro power, wind, solar, biodiesel and of course the alternative fuel cars being developed by ZAP. I not only traded these virtually in the contest, but have also traded some quite profitably in my real portfolio after learning about them and getting a feel for how they moved.”

Green Plains Renewable Energy, Inc., Moving Forward with Plans for Second 50 million Gallon Ethanol Plant Following Recent Funding and Grants

Green Plains Renewable Energy, Inc., Moving Forward with Plans for Second 50 million Gallon Ethanol Plant Following Recent Funding and Grants
RenewableEnergyStocks.com Announces New Featured “Green” Company and its Expansion Plans for Producing Environmentally Beneficial Alternative Fuel

POINT ROBERTS, WA and DELTA, BC - August 24, 2006 - Green technology investor portals www.RenewableEnergyStocks.com and www.EnvironmentStocks.com announce the addition of a new featured ethanol company, Green Plains Renewable Energy, Inc., (NASDAQ: GPRE). The Company is currently building a 50 million gallon nameplate ethanol facility in Shenandoah, Iowa, expected to be operational in mid 2007. Following the recent $47 million secondary offering, the Company is moving forward with a second 50-million gallon facility to be built near Superior, Iowa, with start up expected late 2007. With the completion of both plants, Green Plains will have approximately 110-million gallons of ethanol production capacity (assuming production of 10% over nameplate capacity) by the end of 2007.

Green Plains Renewable Energy also recently announced that the Iowa Department of Economic Development awarded tax incentives and $400,000 in grants and zero interest loans to assist in the development of the second ethanol plant to be built near Superior, Iowa.

According to http://www.ethanol.org/ , “This year, the U.S. ethanol industry will grow to provide more than 5 billion gallons of clean burning, renewable fuel.” Industry growth has been sparked in part by federal and state policies promoting cleaner air and federal and state tax and production incentives. Green Plains has aggressive plans to expand the production capacity at both plants and also intends to build additional plants at other locations as they work to help meet the rising demands for alternative fuels.

GPRE’s President and CEO Barry Ellsworth believes that the high price of oil and increased demand for petroleum on a world-wide basis will continue to drive the demand for ethanol in the future. He has also stated that he believes there is tremendous value in the shares of GPRE when compared to the valuations being given to other companies in the ethanol space. “With only about 6 million shares currently issued and outstanding, once the Company’s first two plants are completed and operational, each share of GPRE’s common stock will represent approximately 18.3 gallons of 2008 projected ethanol production, which the Company believes reflects significant comparative value,” explains Mr. Ellsworth.

The Company’s dry-grind ethanol facilities will incorporate the latest process control systems and biotechnology to maximize production yields and quality. The facility is designed to result in reduced plant emissions using efficient and environmentally friendly technology.

Power blackouts have impact on energy prices - are renewable energy stocks next?

With the recent power blackout in New York and California urging people to conserve energy to avoid blackouts, natural gas prices have spiked. The continued heat waves are putting pressure on the grid systems and traditional energy sources - natural gas and oil and gas are rising. Looking back to 2003 with the major power grid failure, interest in renewable energy stocks was immediate. That has not happened in a significant way yet, as the power outages so far have been isolated to specific areas.

On August 14th 2003 50 million Americans were effected with the largest blackout in American history. The blackout incited an interest in renewable energy stocks that was not sustained long term, but was the beginning of what we saw at our site, of the sector having a more mainstream following by retail investors. Shares of renewable energy public companies posted some of the biggest gains on the NASDAQ the Friday following the blackout.

With renewable energy stocks gaining new , broader interest this year and reaching highs in April and May and then softening - the question is - will the power blackouts fuel renewed life into the renewable energy sector?

China's Attempt to Balance the Environment and a Rapidly Growing Economy Drives Regulation, Innovation and Investment in Renewable Energy, Water Indus

China's Attempt to Balance the Environment and a Rapidly Growing Economy Drives Regulation, Innovation and Investment in Renewable Energy, Water Industry and Healthcare

July 2006, China-AsiaStocks.com

With China's growth at double digit rates into the first half of the year, the environmental concerns and pollution problems are escalating as quickly as the economy, with an estimated 76 reported pollution incidents in the past 8 months. The impact of rapid industrialization has created massive environmental problems in the water air and soil, creating disease and multiple health problems for people living in the affected areas. China is working to create and restore balance and harmony in their environment through pending law, regulation, and investment in new technology. Public companies Vitasti, Inc. (OTCBB: VITS), CECO Environmental Corp (NASDAQ:CECE), Hendrx Corp (OTCBB: HDRX) and Bridgetech Holdings International, Inc. (OTC.PK: BGTH); in renewable energy, air and water treatment and healthcare discuss

how the serious problem of pollution has created business opportunities for their respective sectors.

The All China Environment Federation (ACEF) was launched in Beijing in 2005, receiving backing from high-level government officials as part of a movement to show that China is becoming very serious about the environmental damage and repercussions of the rapid economic growth. It’s receiving global support as evidenced by The World Bank loan of $668 million to the People's Republic of China to support projects to address environmental problems and developing transport infrastructure. China may be positioning to change its global image from environmental disasters to an environmental leader, as it was recently recognized as the world leading investor in renewable energy. In order to pave the road to change, China is changing policy and legal framework to incite investment and innovation in technology.



Renewable Energy; Regulation and Investment Driving the Sector

China has set a target of twenty percent of its power to come from renewable sources by 2020. That kind of aggressive strategy sets the stage for renewable energy companies to participate in the anticipated growth in wind, solar and energy efficient technologies.

Wind energy technology is on the rise and China's largest wind electric power generator manufacturer, Goldwind Science and Technology Co. Ltd., is currently pursuing a U.S. IPO, following on the tracks of several renewable IPO’s. The company plans to go public to finance its anticipated substantial growth as China demands green energy solutions as evidenced by its 6 billion U.S. investment in renewable energy in 2005.

Vitasti, Inc.’s (OTCBB: VITS)Director , Mr. deDelley, a wind farm developer targeting China commented “ The stage is set to provide environmentally friendly power to fulfill the needs of a electrically thirsty nation and stave the pollution associated with the massive developments China is experiencing. Our Company, Vitasti/Welwind ,has been moving projects ahead to develop 1000 megawatts of wind powered generation along the coast of the south China sea. All levels of government and industry are accepting the wind technology with great enthusiasm and willingness, making our work easier. “

Mr. deDelley went on to state” With the political and industry relationships Welwind has forged within China we are looking at continued support to advance the projects and to ensure successful wind farms, creation of rural employment, mitigation of pollution, and provide a greatly needed commodity : wind powered electricity.”

Chinese officials have announced plans for the country's first energy "basic law" passed by the legislature in two years with a goal of reducing national energy consumption by 20 percent from 2006 to 2010 and creating an energy-efficient and environmentally friendly society. The law would encourage domestic energy exploration and international energy cooperation, optimize energy reserves and emergency response systems, scaling and development of renewable and new energies and enhance energy efficiency.

The China Environment Fund, http://www.cefund.com/, a leading VC fund in sustainable investment in China is investing in energy efficiency, solar and bio-diesel.

China’s Water and Air Pollution and Solutions

Recent news in China including the toxic spill into the Desha River have made China's officials and global leaders take action into addressing the urgent environmental and water issues. It’s currently estimated that 300 million people, representing one-quarter the population, drink unsafe, water. Additionally, only one third of the 3.7 billion tons of wastewater discharged is treated.

China is taking steps to create law and regulation to address critical water issues including recently ratifying an international treaty to preserve the marine environment and prevent pollution on the high seas.

Global funding to address water problems has been approved by the World Bank. The World Bank's Board of Executive Directors recently announced loans of $668 million to the People's Republic of China in support of four projects to address environmental problems including water treatment and waste treatment.

Hendrx Corp (OTCBB: HDRX), a manufacturer of water purification technology with operations in China describes, “Senior management of our company is evaluating our current capabilities and seeking complimentary engineering, service and reporting capabilities to remedy and prevent future occurrences that will harm the environment. Our objective is to use computer age technology and instant monitoring of contributing factors that may predict future weaknesses and thereby enabling operating management to implement the appropriate safety measures.”

According to a Hendrx spokesperson, “In as much as the regulatory agencies have not yet begun to create the inquiries, we expect that we will be able and ready to respond to such inquires as they are forthcoming. Realistically, we don’t expect any one entity to be selected to find a solution to the different challenges; rather we expect to be part of a team that will over time solve the total problem.”

“Hendrx is in a unique position to be optimistic about our chances to be part of the “problem- solving team” because we already have more than 200 employees in the Fujian province of China. Our technical know how and our reputation is well respected on both sides of the Pacific.”

In terms of air pollution, according to a 2006 report by the World Watch Institute, China is home to 16 of the 20 cities with the most polluted air in the world.

According to Phillip DeZwirek, Chairman & CEO of CECO Environmental (NASDAQ: CECE), a world leader in clean air solutions, “CECO Environmental is the largest independent air pollution control company in N.A. and having been in business since 1907 has established a customer base of over 2000 companies including most of the Fortune 500. As many of our customers have established manufacturing operations in China they imported our technology and expertise into their Chinese facilities. Chinese based companies recognized the multiple benefits that CECO’s environmental installations brought to these new U.S. owned factories and are now hiring CECO to solve their environmental challenges. The market for air pollution control systems in China is vast and with the imminence of the 2008 Olympics plus the pollution potential from the rapidly expanding Chinese economy the demand for all methods of pollution control is and will be enormous.”

Healthcare – The Impact of Air and Water Pollution on Human Health

If you survey any average person on the street that saw Julia Roberts play Erin Brockovich, they can make the instant connection that industrial water pollution can cause multiple forms of cancer. It’s no different in China, but the problem is multiplied beyond anything North America has experienced. Last November, for example, a factory explosion resulted in benzene, a cancer-causing chemical linked to forms of leukemia, to run into the Songhua River, effecting millions of people in northeast China. More recently, the Dasha River was contaminated when a truck overturned dumping in 60 tons of potentially carcinogenic coal tar.

According to a 2006 report by the World Watch Institute, (http://www.worldwatch.org/node/3881), “a Chinese research institute found that 400,000 premature deaths are caused every year in China by diseases linked to air pollution.”

Bridgetech Holdings International, Inc (BGTH:OTCBB), a medical and healthcare company sees China's environmental situation creating a major impact on the country's healthcare, as well as influencing the product mix their company is bringing to the Chinese market.

According to Michael Chermak, Bridgetech's Chairman & CEO, "Over the near term Bridgetech will specialize in introducing oncology products. This is a direct response to the fact that China is experiencing dramatic changes in the types of cancer and in the overall cancer incident rate. This rate is growing at the unprecedented pace of 3.3 percent per year. The environmental problems associated with rapid industrialization, like coal fired power plants, certainly contribute to this high growth rate. The growth of cancer has affected women most severely. In the last fifteen years the incident rate for women has grown from 89 per 100,000 women to 138 per 100,000. For men it is now at 200, up from 148. “

At present, Bridgetech is very encouraged by developments in China's regulatory system. The government's moves to protect intellectual property and to stem the favoritism and traditional practices in China's product distribution system hold much promise for Bridgetech's future because they will allow the company to introduce the very best in foreign technology with less fear that technology might be unfairly appropriated and because the company will be able to apply professional business practices to more effectively distribute its products throughout China. Faced by the demands of a evolving healthcare system and challenged by sudden changes in the nation's epidemiological profile, China's State Food and Drug Administration recognizes the need to supplement its domestic pharmaceutical industry with foreign medications and is proving a fast track to approval for medications that have undergone the approval process of other regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. This is another positive development for Bridgetech because these are exactly the types of medications the company is seeking approval for.

The Ultimate Goal

We often hear and use the expression "follow the money" to watch and understand industry trends. In China, it's a case of "smell the water and the air” to understand what is needed and where the money should be going in China.

Ironically, information on disasters and health crises may not always be available to the public if the Chinese government has its way, based on newly drafted legislation that will allow them to fine newspapers up to $12,000 if they report on these types of emergencies without first getting permission.

But we won't be in the dark completely if renewable energy companies like Vitasti have their way. As Vitasti, Inc states, “The country knows that it cannot proceed with the economic development and ignore the environment in future growth”

Consumers in China are readily embracing the environmental movement as evidenced by recent info released by Greenpeace International stating that their surveys showed Chinese consumers were prepared to pay more for environmentally friendly PCs than any other country. It's a step towards the ultimate goal of creating balance and harmony with technology and the environment.

The environmental race is one that China cannot afford to loose and based on recent news, they are making serious efforts to repair the damage of the past and find solutions for the future. The question remains – are they moving fast enough? The outcome of the balancing act of managing rapid economic growth and the environmental concerns will impact the world for generations to come as the pollution moves outside of China’s borders.

“A sustainable energy future is possible"

“A sustainable energy future is possible" news from the International Energy Agency (IEA) :

Energy technology scenarios and strategies for a more secure and sustainable energy future


22 June 2006 Paris --- Energy technology scenarios and strategies for a more secure and sustainable energy future

“Technologies can make a difference”, said Claude Mandil, Executive Director of the International Energy Agency (IEA) today in Paris, presenting the key findings of a new IEA publication: Energy Technology Perspectives: Scenarios and Strategies to 2050. “A sustainable energy future is possible, but only if we act urgently and decisively to promote, develop and deploy a full mix of energy technologies – including improved energy efficiency, CO2 capture and storage (CCS), renewables and -- where acceptable -- nuclear energy. We have the means, now we need the will”, Mr. Mandil added.

Energy Technology Perspectives is part of the Agency's response to the call from G8 leaders at their Summit in Gleneagles in July 2005 for the IEA to advise on alternative scenarios and strategies aimed at a “clean, clever and competitive energy future”. Running up to the St. Petersburg G8 summit the study presents a series of scenarios to demonstrate the role energy technologies that are already available or under development can play in future energy markets. “We find that clean and more efficient technologies can return soaring energy-related CO2 emissions to today’s levels by 2050 and halve the expected growth in both oil and electricity demand”, Mr. Mandil said.

Released against a backdrop of historically high oil prices and global CO2 emissions from energy use almost 25% higher than a decade ago, this groundbreaking IEA publication takes a detailed look at status and prospects for key energy technologies in power generation, buildings, industry and transport. It puts forward strategies for attaining scenarios unimaginable under current trends.

Energy efficiency is essential to mitigate growth in energy demand and CO2 emissions

“Improved energy efficiency is an indispensable component of any policy mix”, said Mr. Mandil, “and it is available immediately”. Accelerating energy efficiency improvements alone can reduce the world’s energy demand in 2050 by an amount equivalent to almost half of today’s global energy consumption. To achieve this, however, “governments, in both OECD and non-OECD countries, must be willing to implement measures that encourage the investment in energy-efficient technologies“, Mr. Mandil added.

Decarbonising power generation is possible

Another key technology is the capture and storage of CO2 emitted from power-generation or industrial processes. The study points out that the early demonstration of CCS in full-scale power plants should be a high priority. “If we do not succeed in making CCS viable, the cost of mitigating CO2 emissions will be much higher”, Mr Mandil warned.

Deploying CCS, along with more renewables, more nuclear and more efficient use of natural gas and coal, can significantly decarbonise global electricity generation by 2050. “With the right policy incentives we think there is scope for renewables to quadruple by 2050 and for nuclear to gain a more important role in countries where it is acceptable”, Mr. Mandil stated.

Alternative Fuel Cars Provide a Solution to Today’s Gas Prices: American Honda Motor Co. Inc. Describes Their Innovations

Alternative Fuel Cars Provide a Solution to Today’s Gas Prices: American Honda Motor Co. Inc. Describes Their Innovations
RenewableEnergyStocks.com – Presents an Audio Interview with American Honda Motor Co. Inc. on Evolving in Today’s Alternative Energy Market
POINT ROBERTS, Wash., Delta, B.C. - June 19, 2006 - www.RenewableEnergyStocks.com and www.FuelCellCarNews.com leading investor and industry portals for the renewable energy and fuel cell sectors presents an audio interview with Gunnar Lindstrom, Senior Manager of Honda Alternative Fuels, Stephen Ellis, Manager of Fuel Cell Marketing and Chris Martin, Honda Public Relations spokesman. With the demand for alternative fuel vehicles remaining clear amidst concern over depleting oil and fuel resources, the drive in the market to produce a better range of options increases. As many of these technologies continue to evolve, the goal of making the alternative fuel vehicle an easier choice is at the forefront as companies strive to increase marketability and target a wider range of drivers.

In terms of getting to a point where the Company is less reliant on gasoline fueled vehicles, Gunnar Lindstrom says, “It’s just hard work over a long period of time.” American Honda Motor Co. Inc., the sales, marketing and distribution arm of Honda Motor Co. Ltd. (NYSE: HMC) reports that the Company plans to refine its own zero-emission FCX vehicle over the next 3-4 years.

As they move ahead in the development of new alternative fuel vehicles, Stephen Ellis reflects the Company had at first learned quite a lot through its initial sale of electric cars, whereby they noticed that people were pleased to refill at home. Hence the Company developed the idea to design home refueling stations, in combination with new home heating technologies. The Company also believes this kind of strategic thinking will be prevalent in the design of future products. The Satellite Linked Navigation System is an example of new innovations which will serve to improve convenience for drivers who are making alternative choices.

In an effort to make alternative fuel cars more marketable, Honda has formed a solid link between their new technology and the existing infrastructure at hand. In this respect Ellis says the company is highly aware that, “As we deploy vehicles with a limited refueling infrastructure, people are going to want to have the confidence to get behind the wheel and know that they are not going to drive beyond the limits of where the refueling stations are.” In terms of overall strategy Lindstrom reports, “We believe that once you have mastered conservation and high efficiency through good gas and hybrid cars, the next step is towards natural gas vehicles and ultimately, it would lead to fuel cell vehicles in the next decade or two.”
