Mensch Measure Recognizing October 8 as “National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day” Adopted by Senate

Harrisburg –The Senate today adopted a resolution sponsored by Sen. Bob Mensch (R-24) recognizing October 8, 2018 as “National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day” in Pennsylvania.
Scientists and engineers across the country will celebrate Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day on October 8, a date chosen for the atomic weight of hydrogen (1.008).
Mensch noted the United States is a world leader in the development and deployment of fuel cell and hydrogen technologies. In Pennsylvania, hydrogen is emerging as an energy carrier and a pathway to good environmental stewardship.

As an example, Mensch cited PDC Machines, located in Warminster Township, Bucks County. PDC Machines is continuously working to develop new technologies related to Hydrogen Fuel Cells and encouraging growth within this sector.

“Hydrogen and fuel cells can be used in multiple sectors for transportation, stationary power, and industrial applications, enabling energy security, resiliency, and a strong domestic economy in emerging technologies,” Mensch said. “It is important that private industries, federal and state governments, national laboratories, and institutions of higher education continue to improve fuel cell and hydrogen technologies to address the most pressing energy, environmental, and economic issues of the United States.”
