Dynetek Industries Ltd. (Calgary, Alberta, Canada) announced successful testing of its 12,500psi, lightweight, hydrogen storage cylinder, which features a non-permeable aluminum liner wrapped with high-strength carbon fiber. The 12,500psi cylinder was developed for hydrogen storage for fueling stations that are capable of fast-filling fuel cell vehicles (FCVs).

"This is a significant achievement and milestone in the advancement of hydrogen storage for stationary applications," said President and CEO Heinz Portmann. "This provides further evidence that compressed hydrogen holds the clearest promise to be the fuel choice for future FCVs."
