The European manufacturers’ association CECOD has a new leader. Stefan Kunter, a longtime CECOD executive board member and CEO of Elaflex HIBY GmbH & Co. KG, was elected president for a two-year term during the General Assembly in September.
He succeeds Lise-Lotte Nordholm, vice president of dispenser engineering and NPD with Dover Fueling Solutions.
“In 2022 and 2023, the European manufacturers will face challenges in the transition to sustainable mobility,” Kunter said. “Creating further framework conditions, standards and regulations for the infrastructure is our eminent task. This is the only way to manage the move towards alternative fuels. It is our goal to help make everyday use of alternative fuel dispensing as user-friendly, safe and sustainable as is the case today with petrol and diesel for customers throughout all member countries.”
CECOD is engaged in safety, legal metrology and environmental regulations.
CECOD has experts for the measurement of fuels and vapor recovery, with technical committee members having key roles in the European bodies writing the European standards and guides.
Members from many European countries enable CECOD to gain information and influence at both European and national levels.
A technical committee under CECOD leadership, along with its various subgroups, makes sure members can select which disciplines they want to be involved.
CECOD members include: Alfons Haar, Alma, Bica, Cetil, CODAB, DOMS, Dover Fueling Solutions, Durr Technik, Elaflex HIBY, Fafnir, Faure Herman, Flammer, Hytek, TechnipFMC, Franklin Fueling Systems, Gilbarco-Veeder Root, Hectronic Huth, Isoil, Lafon, OPW, Pernin, Petrotec Group, PWM, Scheidt & Bachmann, Tokheim, TSG, Lantzerath-Gruppe and VR Refiner.
