Powerhouse Energy Group plc (AIM: PHE), the UK technology company commercialising hydrogen production from non-recyclable waste plastic, is pleased to announce that it has ordered the critical key alloy material to be used in the manufacture for the DMG Advanced Thermal Conversion Technology process. It is to be installed at the first plastic to hydrogen facility which will be located at Peel NRE’s – part of Peel L&P – strategic energy and resource hub Protos in Ellesmere Port.
The alloy material has been ordered by Protos Plastics to Hydrogen No. 1 Limited, the Peel NRE Special Purpose Vehicle (the “SPV”). The procurement was funded from the recent loan agreement from PHE which is set to provide up to £3.8 million to the SPV.
The alloy material has the necessary high temperature corrosion resistance whilst providing the strength and lifetime durability necessary for application in the Thermal Conversion Chamber (TCC). The material was selected after four years of research by the Powerhouse team our suppliers and material specialist consultants.
With this commencement of the procurement process, the project development managers King Associates are also engaging with all the long lead suppliers to finalise contracts for other critical components.
David Ryan, Chief Executive Officer of Powerhouse Energy Group, said:
“Over four years of the technology development team’s work has gone into this procurement decision. I would like to thank all involved, including Peel NRE for their commitment and I look forward to seeing the material worked into the Protos chamber fabrication later in the year.”
Myles Kitcher, Non-Executive Director of Powerhouse and Managing Director of Peel NRE, part of Peel L&P, said:
“The material on order sets the path for delivery of this important project for the creation of hydrogen from waste plastic in the UK.”

About Powerhouse Energy Group plc
Powerhouse has developed a proprietary process technology - DMG® - which can utilise waste plastic, end-of-life-tyres, and other waste streams to efficiently and economically convert them into syngas from which valuable products such as chemical precursors, hydrogen, electricity and other industrial products may be derived. Powerhouse’s technology is one of the world's first proven, distributed, modular, hydrogen from waste (HfW) process.
The Powerhouse DMG® process can generate up to 2 tonnes of road-fuel quality hydrogen and more than 58MWh of exportable electricity per day.
Powerhouse’s process produces low levels of safe residues and requires a small operating footprint, making it suitable for deployment at enterprise and community level. As announced on 11th February 2020 under its Supplemental Agreement with Peel Environmental, Powerhouse will receive an annual license fee of £500,000 in respect of each project which is commissioned.
Powerhouse is quoted on the London Stock Exchange's AIM Market under the ticker: PHE and is incorporated in the United Kingdom.
