The membership-based trade association represents 140 companies, agencies and individuals involved in the business of hydrogen, including auto, bus and heavy-duty vehicle manufacturers, compressor/pump manufacturers, fuel cells, electrolyzers, tanks and storage, utility companies, government agencies and education institutions. The CHBC’s mission is to advance the commercialization of hydrogen and fuel cell technology via sector-focused initiatives which include renewable hydrogen, distribution and infrastructure, off-road mobility, on-road mobility and power generation.

Sundyne’s pumps and compressors are widely used for the production, distribution and storage of hydrogen. They serve a range of hydrogen and carbon capture applications in the transport/mobility, power generation, refining, ammonia, chemical and mining industries.

The company’s ETFE-lined ANSIMAG pumps and HMD Kontro metallic pumps are used to pump water and chemicals for pH control into electrolyzers. Sundyne’s sealless pumps feature a compact footprint (with no seals or seal support systems), which is important to accommodate space constraints on electrolyzer skids. Sealless pumps also eliminate the potential for leaks, and they are easier to install, operate and maintain.

“We are pleased to welcome Sundyne to the CHBC and we look forward to collaborating with them, and all CHBC members, to advance the commercialization of hydrogen and fuel cell systems in all market sectors,” said Katrina Fritz, CHBC’s executive director.

“Sundyne shares the CHBC’s commitment towards advancing the hydrogen market for mobility applications, and our technology plays a unique role in the production, transportation and storage for hydrogen,” said Michael O’Neil, Sundyne’s vice president, Hydrogen. “Our collaboration with CHBC further illustrates our commitment to advancing the industry in a variety of ways, and we’re looking forward to working closely with the various members of the council.”
