Construction engineering company Black & Veatch has joined the Centre for Hydrogen Safety (CHS), a global non-profit that supports and promotes the safe handling and use of hydrogen across industrial and consumer applications.
With its new membership, Black & Veatch will join the likes of Nel, Air Liquide, BayoTech, Hyundai, Plug Power, Shell and many more.
Mario Azar, President of Black & Veatch’s Power Business, said, “Hydrogen is a rising star in the changing energy landscape, particularly when it comes to pursuing robust decarbonisation through renewables.”
“Fully integrating hydrogen into the energy mix will be a complicated endeavour. This will require strong collaboration between engineering leaders such as Black & Veatch, technology integrators, investors, activists and regulators, along with the support of high-impact safety organisations such as CHS.”
Nick Barilo, Director of the CHS at the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, said, “We are thrilled to welcome Black & Veatch as a new member of CHS.”
“They are clearly demonstrating their leadership as the first engineering and construction company to join CHS; this will enhance our impact in advancing safe practices across the hydrogen industry.”
