LPC Packaging Selects Methanol-Based Fuel Cell Power

May 11, 2009
FREMONT, Calif.—LPC Packaging, a manufacturer headquartered in Lodi, Calif., will use OorjaPac methanol-based fuel cell systems from Oorja Protonics to power its lift truck fleet.

“We have diligently explored various types of fuel cells for our material handling needs over the last one year since we made the decision to transition to battery-powered forklifts,” says Mike McWeeney, vice president at LPC. “Our decision to consider fuel cells was based on the green benefits as well as an attractive payback. Oorja’s use of methanol fuel for the OorjaPac and its various benefits over competing fuel cell technologies really impressed us. We see this as an initial start to a longer-term alliance.”
