Powerhouse Energy Group PLC (AIM: PHE) announced that its initial European patent application is set to be approved by the European Patent Office in the coming month.
The patent, numbered 20751207.0 and titled ‘Method and Apparatus for the Treatment of Waste Material’, pertains to the regulation of waste heating across various sections of the thermal conversion chamber (TCC) or kiln. This allows for temperature modification to yield the best synthesis gas (syngas) output.
“This marks the company’s first patent approval,” stated chairman Antony Gardner-Hillman. “It offers robust protection for our DMG technology, setting PHE apart in the waste-to-energy field.”
Being at the forefront in developing tech solutions to transform non-recyclable wastes like plastics into low-carbon energy forms, including hydrogen, PHE anticipates the UK and Europe to emerge as primary markets. The company noted it has additional patent applications pending in these regions and beyond.
Gardner-Hillman remarked, “The timing of this patent’s approval coincides well with our ongoing preparations at the Powerhouse Technology Centre in Bridgend.”
Although the centre’s construction is complete, the commissioning of its testing unit remains, with plans to inaugurate in the next year’s first quarter.
Conversations are ongoing with potential clients across varied sectors, each seeking waste management solutions and wanting to decrease their dependence on unprocessed fossil fuels.
The patent’s official grant date is projected to be 11 October.
