UK: Pioneering UK company uses ‘clean hydrogen energy from waste plastic’ technology to provide electricity.

PowerHouse Energy Group plc (“PHE”), a UK technology company pioneering clean energy production from waste plastic and end-of-life tyres, together with the University of Chester, has announced a milestone development. Its demonstration clean energy generation plant has been used to provide electricity for the Energy Centre at the University’s Thornton Science Park microgrid for the first time.

This is the first practical application of this leading-edge and highly environmentally friendly technology of taking waste plastic and converting it to clean electrical energy through PHE’s proprietary Distributed Modular Gasification (DMG©) process. Using its demonstration energy generation plant, Thornton Science Park’s microgrid was connected and supplied with electricity in a successful test run.
