The G3-UHt unit was shipped over to the UK from Australia earlier this year and  operated at a temperature of over 1000 degrees Celcius, demonstrating its capacity to “gasify any historically difficult waste material and generate synthesis gas".

Also up on the  day was Metal Tiger plc (LON:MTR) whose shares roared up over 7% to 2.95p.

The group said its private placement offering, run by Sprott Capital Partners, has raised even more than expected, with gross proceeds of £4.85mln received by the closing date yesterday.

The AIM-listed strategic natural resources investor said the fundraise, the largest by the company to date, included a total of £4.39mln raised through Sprott – above the £4.29mln targeted – while a further £460,000 was raised through a placing and subscription of shares by the company.

On the downside, GoTech Group PLC (LON:GUSC) shares slipped over 13% as the wellbeing tech firm saw losses widen in the first half of its year, but said its products continue to be well-received and is confident in long-term growth.

Its Skills2Achieve (S2A) product – a digital, physical literacy assessment programme designed for UK schools – has largely been given the thumbs up from those using it as well as sector professionals.

Sales of S2A remained fairly weak though which resulted in an overall loss for the six months to 31 March of £288,000 (H1 2016: £257,000), although GoTech said it hopes to reverse this trend as more schools buy into the product.
