It has been a momentous time for the debate on climate change. Between the Extinction Rebellion protests, the UK parliament’s motion to declare a ‘climate emergency’ and a landmark report from the Committee on Climate Change, the urgency of action to reduce emissions has risen up the public agenda. Now that a ‘net zero’ target has been recommended, that debate will turn to how it can best be delivered.
The concept of a zero emissions target for 2050 might have once overlooked the role of our highly developed gas network infrastructure. Instead, we now know it is vital to delivering low-carbon gas and achieving this ambition. As the owners and operators of that infrastructure, our work on green gases, smarter heating systems, carbon capture, usage and storage, and hydrogen is more important than ever.
PowerHouse Energy (LON:PHE) has developed a proprietary process technology called DMG® which can use waste plastic end-of-life-tyres and other waste streams to convert them into cost efficient energy in the form of electricity and ultra clean hydrogen gas fuel for use in cars and commercial vehicles (FCEV: Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles) and other industrial uses. The PowerHouse technology is the world’s first proven, modular hydrogen from waste (HfW) process.
