"Bob van Schoonenberg is a seasoned executive whose depth of experience in strategic planning, corporate governance and executive leadership greatly enhances the Altairnano Board," said Jon Bengtson, Altairnano's Chairman. "Bob has served in various legal and executive capacities for Fortune 500 companies for more than 30 years. In addition, his growing involvement with private equity and emerging companies provides a balance that will benefit Altairnano as it moves toward greater commercialization of its technology."

In an effort to further enhance its corporate governance, the company also reported that the Board established a new permanent Strategy Review Committee. The goal of this committee is to bring the Board closer to the company's strategic planning process on an ongoing basis, enabling more timely strategic counsel. Board members serving on the committee include Michel Bazinet, George Hartman, Mr. van Schoonenberg and Pierre Lortie, who will serve as Chair. All of the committee members are independent directors.

In addition, Mr. van Schoonenberg will serve as Chair of the Audit Committee and as a member of the Compensation Nominating and Governance Committee.

Mr. van Schoonenberg, 61, joins the Altairnano Board as an independent member. He currently serves as executive vice president, chief legal officer, and secretary to the board of directors of Avery Dennison Corporation. Prior to joining Avery Dennison in 1981, he was with Gulf Oil Corporation for seven years. Mr. van Schoonenberg also serves as chairman and chief executive officer of BayPoint Capital Partners, LLC, a private equity/advisory firm located in Newport Beach, California, a role to which he will devote full time upon his retirement from Avery Dennison in December 2008.

Mr. van Schoonenberg is on the Board of Guidance Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: GUID). He is a trustee of Southwestern University Law School (Los Angeles, California) and a past director of the advisory board of the University of Wisconsin Graduate School of Business. Mr. van Schoonenberg received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics from Marquette University, a Master of Business Administration from the University of Wisconsin, and a Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Michigan Law School.
