A UK-based company has developed a technology that turns plastic waste into fuel.
The said technology was made possible by Powerhouse Energy. The tech company said they want to shed an opportunity of making non-recyclable wastes useful—that is, by using it to power up hydrogen cars.
By heating the shredded waste up to around 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit, synthetic gas, or syngas, will be produced. Syngas contains hydrogen, methane, and carbon monoxide and is used to generate electricity. It can also be processed further to separate the hydrogen and use the latter to power fuel cells in vehicles.
Powerhouse Energy Group PLC (LON:PHE) has developed the innovative PHE DMG® System, their proprietary thermal conversion technology. DMG® technology provides a mechanism to dispose of a wide range of waste streams by using them as feedstock that can be converted to EcoSynthesis Gas.
