VIASPACE Inc. announced that fuelcellmaterials.com of Lewis Center, Ohio and VIASPACE have signed an exclusive distribution agreement for North, Central and South America for VIASPACE Energy products, beginning with VIASPACE Energy's new HS-1000 VIASENSOR, a laser based humidity sensor for gas based fuel cells that provides in-situ readings every 1.5 seconds.
Fuelcellmaterials.com has placed an initial order for multiple units of the VIASENSOR worth over $200,000.00. In addition to exclusive rights in the Americas, fuelcellmaterials.com will also sell through its website and agreements with other distribution partners on a global basis.

Dr. Carl Kukkonen, CEO of VIASPACE, stated, "Our distribution agreement with fuelcellmaterials.com provides us with broad marketing and distribution coverage throughout the Americas, and it expands our growing presence in the Energy field on a global basis. We are partnering with top organizations around the globe that have a good reputation and the trust of customers in their own markets. Fuelcellmaterials.com is yet another example of such an organization. We are delighted with the confidence that fuelcellmaterials.com has shown in our new state-of-the-art humidity sensor through placement of an initial order for multiple units."
