Aqua Power Systems Acquires Exclusive Worldwide License to Patented Magnesium Air Fuel Cell Technologies

Tokyo, Japan–(Newsfile Corp. – May 29, 2015) – Aqua Power Systems Inc. (OTCQB: APSI) (the “Company“) is pleased to announce that it has signed a Licensing and Option Agreement with Tadashi Ishikawa, our chief executive, director and majority shareholder, and Aqua Power System Japan Kabushiki Kaisha (“Aqua Power Japan“), a company specializing in the development, manufacturing, and commercialization of magnesium air fuel cell technologies for generating safe, green, reliable and inexpensive off-grid electricity, which is also operated by Mr. Ishikawa.

The Licensing and Option Agreement, subject to its terms and conditions, provides the Company with the exclusive worldwide rights to manufacture, market, and distribute all RMAF fuel cell technologies and products developed by Aqua Power Japan. In addition, also subject to certain terms and conditions, the Licensing and Option Agreement provides the Company with an option to purchase Aqua Power Japan. The renewable Licensing and Option Agreement is for a term of 10 years.

“We are very pleased to have quickly completed an exclusive worldwide licensing agreement for Aqua Power Japan’s patented water activated RMAF magnesium air fuel cell technologies”, commented Tadashi Ishikawa, President of Aqua Power Systems Inc. Furthermore, “These products and technologies have already been proven under the demanding conditions in the Japanese market since 2009. Now, as a result of a rapid increase in interest in clean, portable, and scalable battery technologies for home, commercial, and automotive applications, the timing of this licensing agreement has positioned the Company to expand distribution and build public awareness of RMAF fuel cell technologies and products on a global scale.”


Founded in Japan in 2004, Aqua Power Japan develops, manufactures and has successfully commercialized magnesium air fuel cells for generating safe, green, reliable and inexpensive off-grid electricity. Aqua Power Japan’s patented (and patent pending) Realistic Magnesium Air Fuel System (“RMAF”) technology causes electricity to be generated from the chemical reaction of the combination of magnesium, oxygen (air) and a saltwater electrolyte. RMAF powered applications can be refueled using its proprietary lightweight magnesium rods, which fuel the chemical reaction.

RMAF fuel cells have a long shelf, are lightweight, transportable, environmentally friendly, safe and scalable for greater power generation. Aqua Power Japan has aggressively patented (16 patents and patents-pending to date) and protects its intellectual property in Japan and internationally.

Aqua Power Japan’s fuel cell technology can be applied to many applications requiring remote power, including emergency preparedness and disaster relief, outdoor recreation, industry (mining, oil and gas, forestry), military, marine (saltwater environments), and automotive opportunities (main drive, electrical subsystems, and backup systems).

Aqua Power Japan has been generating revenue since its initial products were launched in 2009 in Japan. These products included a water-activated AA battery (more than 8 million sold to date), mini-LED flashlights, and portable radios. Aqua Power Japan products gained national attention in Japan following the earthquake and tsunami that devastated many parts of the country in 2011.

On behalf of the Board Tadashi Ishikawa, President
