First commercial application of DMG technology achieves planning permission from Cheshire West and Chester Planning committee for the Protos site.

David Ryan CEO said: “We congratulate Peel and W2T on the success of the planning approval for the first facility utilising our proprietary DMG® technology. The decision represents a key milestone for PowerHouse and, after developing the technology alongside Protos at Thornton Science Park, we now look forward to working alongside Peel to complete funding and delivering the first commercial application of the DMG® technology, creating hydrogen from waste plastics and helping to kick start the hydrogen revolution in the North West.”

Myles Kitcher, Managing Director at Peel Environmental – part of Peel L&P – commented: “The creation of this UK-first facility makes great strides to solve two important issues; the huge amount of waste plastic produced, and the over-reliance on fossil fuels for energy. The technology has been proven at Thornton Science Park and will now be commercialised at Protos, before being rolled out across the UK. This is hugely significant for Cheshire and the wider region, demonstrating how we’re rising to the challenge of being the UK’s first low carbon industrial cluster and setting a standard for others to follow.”

PowerHouse Energy Group is the designer, creator, and developer of a modular clean energy recovery system – DMG®

Using renewable or waste feedstocks, the DMG® System thermally converts these streams into an extremely valuable intermediate product – EcoSynthesis Gas – in an environmentally responsible and economically viable manner.

PowerHouse Energy Group plc (AIM:PHE) has developed the innovative PHE DMG® System – our proprietary thermal conversion technology. The company listed on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange in June 2011.

DMG® technology provides a mechanism to dispose of a wide range of waste streams by using them as feedstock that can be converted to EcoSynthesis Gas.

EcoSynthesis Gas can in turn can be used to produce chemical precursors, allow the extraction of a stream of ultra-pure hydrogen gas, or to generate electricity for use within an enterprise. Our DMG® Systems have a small footprint (less than ½ acre), making them suitable for deployment within industry, or at an enterprise or community level.
