Coastal Hydrogen Energy, Inc. is moving forward with the construction of its dedicated
prototype for the production of hydrogen from water using its unique photocatalytic
process. The prototype should be in operation in September. We are presently making
hydrogen from water in preliminary tests of specific catalysts, and the results
We recently received an office action from the USPTO indicating that a second
patent will be granted covering core advancements in our technology. Our first
patent was granted in December of 2003. A third patent application is also pending.
Under an agreement with Oklahoma State University, we will be moving our new prototype
into OSU's chemistry lab. We are working in collaboration with Dr. Allen Apblett,
an OSU professor and noted catalytic chemist who is a member of our Science Team.
Since our March presentation to Silicom Ventures, we have raised additional capital
through the sale of shares to our existing shareholders and new shareholders.
We are open to discussion of further investment with interested parties.
