Interest in its energy from waste technology is 'overwhelming' as concern over waste plastic grows, Powerhouse Energy Group PLC (LON:PHG) said today.
A commercial plant using Powerhouse’s DMG process will come onstream at the Protos Energy Park in the next few months.
The company hopes this operating model will expedite the conversion of the interest into orders.
Powerhouse has completed the engineering design for the DMG process with electricity now being exported to the University of Chester microgrid.
As a result, it is now able to offer proposals for the application of DMG at a number of waste management customer sites.
“We are also signing co-operation agreements with potential partners for the application engineering at sites being developed through 2019.”
Waste plastics and used tyres are the initial feedstocks being used to produce hydrogen either as fuel or for use in chemical plants.
Powerhouse is still in its development phase and losses in 2018 rose to £2.5mln (£1.87mln).
