PowerHouse Energy has developed an innovative process that generates hydrogen and electricity for the distributed grid from non-recyclable plastic and used tyres. It benefits from rising demand globally for hydrogen and diverts material from landfill.
PowerHouse Energy’s exclusive development partner Waste2Tricity (W2T) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with recycling company Advanced Sustainable Developments (ASD). ASD intends to open a PET plastics recycling facility at Peel Environmental’s Protos energy hub in Cheshire, which is where W2T intends to locate the first commercial scale waste-to-energy DMG system from PowerHouse. Under the terms of the MoU, the electricity generated by the DMG system will be fed into a private grid on the Protos site and supplied at a discount to current power market prices to ASD. In addition, ASD has agreed to supply the DMG unit with unrecyclable plastic for use as feedstock, paying a price for disposal that is significantly below current landfill prices.
