"We are pleased to announce Terry's position at Altairnano. He brings strong technical expertise and business acumen, complemented by 25 years of experience in corporate America, including the DuPont Company and Duracell, now a subsidiary of P&G," said Alan J. Gotcher Ph.D., President and CEO of Altair Nanotechnologies Inc. "Terry has a proven track record in building operations, and has actively led improvements in large and small businesses. I am confident his experience and leadership will help continue the growing commercial acceptance of our unique power and energy storage technology."

Prior to joining Altair Nanotechnologies, Dr. Copeland operated T. M. Copeland Associates, an engineering, technology and operations consulting firm.

Dr. Copeland began his professional career with the DuPont Company, beginning in Research and Development, where he was granted three patents based on his first two years of work. His tenure with DuPont led to responsibilities in international marketing and manufacturing, culminating as Manufacturing Manager with responsibility for the output of several plants in North America.

In 1992, he joined Duracell as Director of Engineering for North America. In addition to expanding the engineering organization, he was responsible for the program leading to the development of Duracell's on-cell battery tester. It was during this effort that Dr. Copeland first worked with Dr. Gotcher, then the Chief Technology Officer of Avery Dennison. He was asked to take over the ailing manufacturing facility in Lexington, NC, and was credited with turning around that operation in a short period of time. Dr. Copeland went on to lead Duracell's largest plant in North America, with 1000 employees, in Lancaster, SC. When Gillette purchased the company, Dr. Copeland moved to Boston as the company's Director of Product Development.

In 2000, Dr. Copeland joined Millennium Cell, Inc., a development stage company in the hydrogen fuels arena as Vice President for Product Development, and quickly expanded his role to include Research and Development.

"I am delighted to be working once again with Alan Gotcher, for whom I have great respect. The technology of Altairnano is remarkable, and will change the perception of what is possible in rechargeable battery power," said Dr. Copeland.

Dr. Terry Copeland graduated from the University of Delaware in 1973, with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering. He then earned a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1978, with a minor in law.
