H2XCEL ‘Hydrogen Accelerator’ Lab Launches in Houston

Houston, TX July 17, 2023 | Last month, Oceanit launched its new Hydrogen Hub test laboratory, H2XCEL, at newly expanded facilities in Houston, Texas. H2XCEL, short for ‘Hydrogen Accelerator,’ is a unique facility, one-of-a-kind in North America, that will aid the development of cutting edge technologies to help integrate hydrogen into the current energy infrastructure.

H2XCEL will help Oceanit’s scientists and researchers perform critical testing and gather data on hydrogen-methane blending, transport pipeline safety, hydrogen production, and monitoring tools. Technologies like HydroPel will be further developed under various conditions, along with technologies like DragX, HALO, and HyDIOS.

The recent opening was covered in several outlets in the Houston energy space. Click below to view the full articles:
