Innovative process uses plastic waste to fuel hydrogen cars

UK company Powerhouse Energy wants to turn the current plastic deluge into an opportunity by producing energy from non-recyclable plastics and other waste.

Britain produces about 5 million metric tonnes of plastic waste every year, but less than a third of that is recycled.

Powerhouse Energy has developed a process where it shreds the waste and then heats it to around 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit to produce syngas — a mixture of hydrogen, methane and carbon monoxide. Syngas can either be burned to produce electricity, or the hydrogen can be separated out 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.
