Peel NRE to develop its second £20m plastic-to-hydrogen facility in Scotland

Peel NRE is developing a second waste plastic-to-hydrogen facility set to be located at Rothesay Dock on the north bank of the River Clyde, Scotland.

The facility, revealed today (June 1) will cost around £20m ($28m) and will take non-recyclable plastics, destined for landfill, incineration or export overseas, and use them to create a new local source of sustainable hydrogen.

The hydrogen is expected to be used as a clean fuel for buses, cars and HGVs with plans to develop a linked hydrogen refuelling station on the project site.

The 13,500 tonne facility will be the second in the UK to use pioneering technology developed by Powerhouse Energy Group after plans to create a similar plant at Peel NRE’s Protos site in Cheshire were approved in 2019.
