HOPKINTON, MA--(Marketwire - Nov 20, 2012) - Hy9 (http://www.hy9.com), the leading provider of point-of-use, high purity hydrogen generation platforms for fuel cells, today announced their collaboration and partnership to develop and market an integrated fuel processor for use in Altergy's Freedom Power™ fuel cell systems. The collaboration joins Altergy's leadership position in fuel cells with Hy9's capabilities in point of use hydrogen generation and purification products.

Altergy and Hy9 will work together to integrate and optimize Hy9's HGS platform with Altergy's Freedom Power™ fuel cell systems. The Hy9 HGS platform converts ubiquitous chemical feedstock into a high purity hydrogen stream at the point-of-use. In addition to the collaboration agreement, Hy9 and Altergy Systems have announced a 3-year distribution agreement allowing Altergy System to co-market the Hy9 platform.
