Incredible attendance at @PDCMachines 3rd plant opening, including several PA state representatives. PDC is recognized worldwide for its compressor technology, says Kareem Afzal, VP at PDC

Incredibly excited to attend CHBC member @PDCMachines opening of their 3rd plant today!

We're saddened to have learned about the death of Henry "Hank" Weeda. Hank was a pillar in the #H2 community and was integral to the founding of @CAHydrogen 20 years ago, where he served as Board Chair and Director Emeritus for many years.
