Energy sources & supplies are constantly changing, often through disruptive technology. Wood to coal, coal to oil and gas (hydrocarbons), and now hydrocarbon to hydrogen. In almost all cases, the disruptive changes seen in a new industry segment also create opportunities in existing industry segments. Discover how unique applications, such as crosslinked PEEK and specialized FKM compounds, can make all the difference in solving hydrogen-related performance problems. New compounds tested with hydrogen at national laboratories are making waves in other markets, and evidence suggests that they may be leveraged for oil and gas applications as well. Hear from experts at Greene Tweed about their unique approach to disruptive materials development and how it can be leveraged to enable success in hydrogen and other applications.
