Waste2tricity Protos Ltd has received a £1.25m grant for its DMG® hydrogen from waste development site at Protos near Ellesmere Port in Cheshire.
PowerHouse Energy Group’s development partner Waste2Tricity secured the grant for the development on behalf of its subsidiary following a successful application to the £4.1m Energy Fund competition.
The grant will fund the purchase of the thermal conversion chamber, a core element of the DMG® hydrogen from plastic waste plant and will be subject to the DMG development at Protos achieving planning approval and funding by the end of March 2020.
“We congratulate W2T and Peel on securing this award from Cheshire and Warrington Local Enterprise Partnership, representing confidence in our DMG process as an important technology to deliver clean energy from unrecyclable waste plastic,” said David Ryan, CEO of PowerHouse Energy.
“This grant offer recognises the importance of the PHE DMG technology and the impact it may have on assisting Cheshire and Warrington and potentially the country to the target of net zero emissions – through the creation of hydrogen fuel from waste plastic,” said Tim Yeo, Chairman of Waste2Tricity.
