China trade talks A meeting in Calgary today was slated to get Canadian manufacturers interested in providing products for a spe- cial Canadian trade mission to Peking in the new year.

DECEMBER 24th MARQUIS FLOWER SHOP MARQUIS HOTEL Phone 327-1515 New power source By JIJ1 S1AYBIE Staff Wriliv It may not be loo long before homes and businesses in south- ern Alberta are generating their own electricity by using natural gas. Canadian Western Natural Gas Company Limited of Cal- gary has joined a group of 32 U.S. utility companies in a re- search program to develop a fuel cell (battery) using natur- al gas. In the last three years million has been spent develop- ing a working unit to produce electric power at the point of consumption of natural gas. Canadian Western is the first Canadian utility member of the group. The companies involved in the co operative test program now are in the process of field testing and determining possi- ble market acceptance and eco- nomic feasibility of equipment which could provide the power requirements for a home or business using the natural gas fuel cell. Canadian Western expects the first test installation in Canada will be made in Cal- gary and will be open to the public for a few months next fall. By the end of next year re- search costs will have climbed to an estimated million after 37 new installations have been made in homes, apart- ments, stores, offices and in- dustry, largely in the U.S. The first installation of the "Black as it is known in the industry, was made in a family condominium in Farm- ington, Conn. The dwelling was a four-bed- room unit covering square feet. The Black Box, about the size of a large air conditioning unit, was a watt power plant. The unit provides all the lighting, heating and other electrical power required by the household. There are .several advant- ages in using tnc natural gas fuel cell. There is no pollution. In generating electricity the only byproducts are water and carbon dioxide, the same by- products as those from human breath. The unit produces little noise. It is highly flexible.
