Focused on the energy transition since the late 1990s, with a vision ‘to realize human potential through hydrogen infrastructure solutions’, PDC Machines is one of the world’s leading compression technology providers for hydrogen energy applications, including mobility, supply side, and power-to-gas applications.
The Philadelphia-based company designs and manufacturers diaphragm compressors engineered for ultra-high purity compression of all rare, hazardous, toxic, pyrophoric, explosive and industrial gases and mixtures. This has traditionally been for the industrial gas, research, and chemical processing sectors, globally, but in more recent years PDC Machines has found its technologies and expertise not only at the heart of the growing renewable energies, but in strong demand too.
At the heart of PDC Machines’ hydrogen activities is its SimpleFuel™ solution. An on-site hydrogen generation, storage and dispensing appliance, SimpleFuel™ uses water and electricity to produce high purity fuel cell-grade hydrogen to refuel a range of fuel cell powered vehicles. The technology was developed in response to the H2 Refuel H-Prize competition launched by the US Department of Energy (DOE) in 2014, which challenged American innovators to create solutions that could provide a path for greater adoption of FCEVs by improving the performance and affordability of small-scale hydrogen fueling infrastructure.
