Hydrogen is plentiful, versatile and already plays a part in some industries. In the future, it could play a much bigger role in the transition to a low-carbon world.
Almost anything that uses energy can be powered by hydrogen. Hydrogen is a clean and flexible energy carrier that can help reduce carbon emissions from transport, power generation and heating. It is already an important part of energy intensive industries such as refining and chemicals, and it offers great potential for reducing carbon emissions from others such as steel manufacturing. It can be stored and transported in liquid or gaseous form. It can be burned for heating or used in fuel cells to generate heat and electricity. In fuel cells, it produces no emissions at the point of use.
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.
