Astris Energi VP Marketing To Present At F-Cell 2005 Conference

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Sept. 22, 2005) - Peter K. Nor, P. Eng, MBA, Vice President Marketing and Corporate Development of Astris Energi Inc. ("Astris")(OTCBB:ASRNF), the world's leading alkaline fuel cell (AFC) technology company, is presenting a paper titled "Applications of Low-Cost Alkaline Fuel Cells and Alkaline Fuel Cell Systems" to the f-Cell 2005 conference being held September 26-28 in Stuttgart, Germany.

Mr. Nor's presentation draws on both Astris' progress in AFC as well as on recently published information supporting the specific advantages of this technology and dispelling out-of-date misconceptions. Mr. Nor notes that AFCs are reliable performers that can be built inexpensively in modest volumes and are less expensive to operate than comparable low-temperature fuel cells. The presentation will also explore a number of near term markets in which low temperature fuel cells are starting to gain traction and how the specific benefits of the AFC provide much potential for this technology. Further information will be published on the Astris website at www.astris.ca after the conclusion of the conference.

More than 500 international experts and managers from the fuel cell and hybrid sector were guests at last year's conference, including participants from the USA and Canada. The majority of the participants were from outside of the fuel cell industry - an indication of the strong practical orientation of the f-cell congress. More information on the conference can be found at http://www.f-cell.de/english.
