Hydrogen Utopia International (HUI) and Linde will look to deploy Powerhouse Energy’s unique waste-to-hydrogen system in Poland.
This is expected to progress with Linde finalising a technical feasibility evaluation to deploy the syngas cleanup and hydrogen extraction of Powerhouse Energy’s DMG technology.

The feasibility study envisages a plant to be jointly developed by Linde, HUI and Powerhouse in Konin, Central Poland.
It is expected that, once operational, the facility will convert 40 tonnes of plastic waste into 58MWh of renewable electricity and clean hydrogen per day.
The hydrogen produced will then be used locally as a fuel for city buses and other heavy-duty vehicles in addition to passenger cars.
The DMG system will additionally provide heat to the citizens of Konin thanks to the central heating system.
Aleksandra Binkowska, CEO of Hydrogen Utopia International, said, “We are proud to have Linde, who are proven hydrogen experts, on board of this project.
“In the case of DMG deployment in Poland, Linde’s efficiency will speed up decarbonising my country.
“Thanks to our Powerhouse Energy DMG technology, we also aim to offer a valid solution to a massive plastic waste issue which we are facing at the moment in Poland.”
Harald Ranke, Managing Director at Selas-Linde, said, “We at Linde are very happy to contribute our gas-cleaning and hydrogen technologies to this forward-looking project.
“Producing hydrogen from plastic waste will help to solve an environmental problem and at the same time foster decentralised hydrogen utilisation.”
