PDC Machines Inflation Reduction Act photo
Press Release
∙ August 17, 2022
PDC Machines responds to the Inflation Reduction Act
The Biden administration signed the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 into law, promising a suite of climate protections and investments in clean energy. Among these promises is a commitment to H2 energy and fuel cell electric vehicles, creating high-quality jobs and accelerating the decarbonization of the U.S. economy from industry to mobility.

“The Inflation Reduction Act is a watershed piece of legislation,” said PDC Machines CEO Kareem Afzal. “This bill addresses two points of anxiety for Americans at once: the creation of high-quality jobs and the role of climate change in their daily lives. We can supercharge economic growth with jobs in the hydrogen sector while decarbonizing the U.S. economy, which the IPCC reports needs to be at net-zero by 2050 to avoid the worst scenario.”

“Hydrogen is one of the fastest growing technological sectors in green energy, and with this bill is poised to explode in size and viability. PDC Machines intends to be the tip of the spear in hydrogen with our industry-leading technologies and world-class workforce.”

The Inflation Reduction Act introduces a 10-yr tax credit for clean H2 and H2 energy storage, revises the clean vehicle credit to include H2 fuel-cell vehicles, and expands the clean energy station tax credit, among other investments in clean energy.

PDC Machines SimpleFuel Hyundai Washington DC Hydrogen.
Press Release
∙ February 10, 2020
PDC Machines and IVYS Energy Solutions Join Forces with Department of Energy and Hyundai Motor Company to Deploy SimpleFuel in Washington D.C.
PDC Machines and IVYS Energy Solutions will work with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and Hyundai Motor Company on a collaboration to assess the current status of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies’ performance. As part of this partnership, Hyundai will provide five Hyundai NEXO fuel cell vehicles to DOE and support the installation of a SimpleFuel® hydrogen refueling appliance in the Washington, D.C., area this fall 2020. SimpleFuel® combines electrolyzer production, PDC compression, onboard storage, controls, safety, and dispensing in one small package. The SimpleFuel® hydrogen refueling appliance is a joint development between IVYS Energy Solutions and PDC Machines. This partnership will provide DOE managers and the national laboratories access to data from real-world operation of hydrogen and fuel cell applications and help guide future DOE research and development.

The idea behind the SimpleFuel® hydrogen refueling appliance came out of DOE’s H-Prize H2Refuel competition. This competition encouraged American innovators to develop small-scale hydrogen generation systems to refuel forklifts or vehicles at community centers, businesses, and other locations that don’t have readily available hydrogen stations nearby.

The H-Prize H2Refuel winners, IVYS Energy Solutions and PDC Machines, have been rapidly deploying the American-designed and manufactured technology on a global scale to refuel on-road vehicles and material handling equipment. “It is an honor to be selected for this showcase application in the D.C. area,” says Kareem Afzal, Vice President of PDC Machines. “With our partners at IVYS, the team is aggressively commercializing this novel, compact and robust technology to client partners in the U.S., Asia, Australia, and Europe. We are building a healthy backlog of orders and are ready for scale. PDC has invested in a 3rd manufacturing facility to more than double our production capacity in Warminster, PA as a demonstration of our belief that the hydrogen economy is accelerating. We look forward to executing this exciting project.”

“The promise of a reliable, readily-deployable hydrogen refueling solution in SimpleFuel® is evidenced in projects like envisioned here in D.C.,” says Darryl Pollica, CEO of IVYS Energy Solutions. “We are committed to enabling clean mobility and are thrilled to be able to strongly support DOE’s mission.” The five Hyundai NEXO fuel cell cars, which can rely on the SimpleFuel® for regional hydrogen refueling, will join the existing DOE fleet in Washington, D.C. DOE will provide several of the vehicles to federal government agencies and national laboratories, which also have refueling capability. This will allow the independent validation of data and the development of workforce training programs and encourage greater collaboration among government, research, and industry.
