Brehon Energy of Denver, CO has acquired a cryogenics company, Technical Dynamic Systems of Marysville, OH, in a move to create a new cryogenics division. The new group will produce a line of next-generation cryogenic hardware, including valves, connectors, and vacuum components for the energy and aerospace markets. The division will also work with Brehon's subsidiary, Hythane Co. to fabricate cryogenic hardware for use in alternative-fueled vehicles and fueling stations. Hythane is an alternative vehicle fuel composed of natural gas and hydrogen, which reportedly reduces emissions 50 percent beyond natural gas. Hythane Co. President Roger Marmaro notes that the acquisition is important because "a strong cryogenic infrastructure is needed to provide an opportunity to deliver hydrogen-based fuels into new energy markets."
