Powerhouse Energy Group plc (AIM: PHE), the UK technology company commercialising hydrogen production from waste plastic, is pleased to announce that Peel NRE, part of Peel L&P, has submitted a planning application to develop its second waste plastic to hydrogen facility, using Powerhouse technology, at the Rothesay Dock on the north bank of the River Clyde, West Dunbartonshire.
The 13,500 tonne facility will be the second in the UK to use pioneering DMG®technology developed by Powerhouse, after plans for a similar facility at Peel NRE’s Protos site in Cheshire were approved in 2019.
After consulting with the local community and stakeholders around the North Clyde site, Peel NRE has submitted a planning application to West Dunbartonshire Council.
Tim Yeo, Executive Chairman of Powerhouse, said:
“We welcome the submission of the planning application for a second site for our recycling technology which will transform plastics and waste into clean energy. We hope this pioneering technology will play an important role in supporting the objective of both Holyrood and Westminster to make hydrogen a key element of Scotland’s decarbonisation strategy. A planned hydrogen refuelling station at this site will help bolster the region’s infrastructure and help accelerate the clean energy transition, improving our environment for future generations in the region”.
Decisions about the financing of this second plant will be made after land use planning consent has been obtained and closer to the start date for construction. Details of this will be announced at that time.
