CGA Announces Formation of Hydrogen Membership

November 2, 2022

MCLEAN, VA. – The Compressed Gas Association (CGA), with approval from the Board of Directors, has formed a new CGA Hydrogen Membership ensuring that perspectives from all segments of the hydrogen economy are represented as we continue to publish safety standards for this rapidly expanding industry.

“As the hydrogen market continues to grow in the Americas, especially on the heels of the Inflation Reduction Act which included $369 billion for climate and energy policies, it is imperative that CGA’s membership adapt to include manufacturers, distributors, and others in the hydrogen space,” said Rich Gottwald, President and CEO. “CGA has been at the forefront of publishing hydrogen safety standards since 1955 and more recently has been running a year-long public awareness campaign for hydrogen safety. Our work is just beginning, and we look forward to ensuring the bright future of hydrogen with our new Hydrogen Members.”

CGA’s Hydrogen Membership is open to any company engaged in the manufacture, sale, lease, transportation, or distribution of hydrogen or of equipment, materials, supplies, or technical services used specifically in connection with the hydrogen industry doing business or operating in the United States, Canada, or Mexico.

CGA Hydrogen Members will have voting rights on CGA’s Hydrogen Technology and HYCO Committees, free access to CGA’s electronic library of 25+ hydrogen publications, and access to CGA hydrogen events.

All CGA Hydrogen Membership applications are subject to approval by CGA.


Founded in 1913, the Compressed Gas Association (CGA) is dedicated to the development and promotion of safety standards and safe practices in the industrial, medical, and food gases industry. CGA represents more than 140 member companies including manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, and transporters of gases, cryogenic liquids, and related products and services.
