Welcome to the Ohio Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Coalition

While we have always focused on hydrogen with respect to fuel cells, we recognize the importance of hydrogen, from development and production, to storage, distribution, and utilization. Our name change and new logo serve as a realignment and recommitment. We continue our focus with the same professionalism, credibility, and collaboration efforts to promote, educate, and serve the hydrogen and fuel cell industry.

OFCHC Member News

The OFCHC welcome new member, OMAL Automation!

OMAL is a leading Italian company specialized in the automation of flow control.

They design, manufacture and sell:

  • high cycling pneumatic actuators (from 70 to 283.000 Inch-Lbs)
  • stainless steel valves for heavy duty applications (i.e. until 10.100 PSI) or ( i.e from -58°F to 482° F)

Founded in 1981 in Italy, where it still has its headquarters and production units, OMAL currently operates worldwide through a strong network of distributors and since 2020, has established a presence in the North American market with our new site in Cincinnati, OH.

This is the new hydrogen fuel cell: extremely compact and boasting 157kW of power

This is the first “intelligent” hydrogen fuel cell: an advance in mobility. A lightweight hydrogen fuel cell of 157kW production power has been developed by Intelligent Energy that can generate power for a clean power technology company. The brand defined it in its presentation as a “commercially-viable, turnkey solution”, something we believe is promising for the sector. The power density of that fuel-cell system is also innovating, and it is striking that it can still generate 157kW in a lightweight hydrogen fuel cell product. It’s what we see as a proposal to outperform EVs, with even better fuel, that needs, yes, a more ambitious and accessible network of hydrogen filling stations

Bill Gates hooked on this hydrogen fuel and solid carbon startup

Bill Gates recently visited a climate tech startup in the Seattle area called Modern Hydrogen, which is focused on the production of hydrogen fuel and solid carbon.  The company developed a device that breaks down natural gas molecules to produce hydrogen fuel and solid carbon. Those products each have applications for lowering greenhouse gas emissions. H2 can be used as a carbon emission-free fuel, and solid carbon has a number of different industrial applications, including the aforementioned asphalt.
