PDC Machines works with Philadelphia Eagles on hydrogen project
by Molly Burgess | gasworld US Edition | June 2020
With states such as California taking a global lead on hydrogen innovations, the US currently stands as one of the major players in the clean fuel market. Philadelphia-based diaphragm compressor technology provider PDC Machines has made a big breakthrough in the US by combining the nation’s favorite sport with hydrogen innovations.
NFL is a frequent topic of conversation, but rarely for its support toward a hydrogen fuel. Earlier this year that changed, when Philadelphia Eagles entered into a sustainability partnership with PDC Machines for a SimpleFuel hydrogen refueling unit that will provide green hydrogen to the team.
The unit, which now stands as one of PDC Machines’ key innovations, was originally developed as the out-product of H-Prize, the Department of Energy’s H2Refuel, which challenged American innovators to collaborate to design and build a small scale refueler.
