Almost one year since UK-based PowerHouse Energy entered its commercialisation phase, which has already resulted in numerous collaborations for establishing waste-to-hydrogen plants in several locations across the UK, the company is now set to announce its first commercial design contract utilising its proprietary Distributed Modular Gasification (DMG®) system.
The new technology from PowerHouse comes just in time for The Committee on Climate Change’s (CCC) call for ‘proper and effective low carbon hydrogen trials’ ensuring the UK makes technological decisions in mid 2020’s to hit 2050 decarbonised targets. According to a source from 2018, the UK exports approximately 50,000 tonnes of plastic waste each year for recycling overseas, a lot which does not end up being recycled.
gasworld spoke to PowerHouse Energy’s new CEO, David Ryan to find out more about the technology, a first for the UK hydrogen market.
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.
