PowerHouse Energy Group plc (AIM: PHE), the UK technology company pioneering clean energy production from waste plastic and end-of-life tyres, together with the University of Chester, announces a milestone development as its demonstration energy generation plant powers the Energy Centre at University of Chester’s Thornton Science Park microgrid for the first time.
Keith Allaun, CEO of PowerHouse, said: “This is a promising step along the path to the commercial roll-out of our waste to hydrogen solutions, which are also ideally suited to help reduce the vast quantities of waste plastic that is causing an environmental disaster across the world’s oceans.
“We’re delighted about working together to achieve this milestone. It is momentous for the University of Chester to be the first to receive electricity from the PowerHouse equipment and to share this success of working collaboratively on such a groundbreaking technology to help tackle the waste issues facing our society,” added Paul Vernon, Chief Executive of Thornton Science Park.
