Powerhouse Energy Group plc (AIM: PHE), the UK technology company commercialising hydrogen production from waste plastic, is pleased to note that its development partner, Hydrogen Utopia International PLC (HUI), has signed a letter of intent with the City of Simitli, Bulgaria.
The letter sets out HUI’s intention to build and manage a Distributed Modular Gasification plant (DMG®) using Powerhouse’s technology sited in a commercial sector close to existing waste remediation facilities in Simitli in the south-west of Bulgaria. The project would be subject to approval by Powerhouse.
Simitli is situated in the industrial South West of Bulgaria, and has a population of circa 8,000 and like many in the region, the town has historically relied on the extraction of fossil fuels to support its economy.
Powerhouse is pleased to see HUI’s progress in Bulgaria. Powerhouse announced on the 7th October 2021 that it had entered into a binding collaboration agreement (the “Collaboration Agreement”) with HU2021 International UK Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hydrogen Utopia International PLC, to market the deployment of DMG® technology in territories outside the UK.
The Distributed Modular Generation (DMG®) technology can utilise all 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.
All potential projects under the Collaboration Agreement are subject to approval by Powerhouse and the formal IP Implementation licence to HUI for construction of its projects approved by Powerhouse, which will cover the licence fees to be received by Powerhouse for any deployment of the DMG technology, has yet to be agreed.
ABOUT POWERHOUSE ENERGY GROUP
Powerhouse Energy, the sustainable hydrogen company, has a vision to be a global leader in technology solutions that transform plastics and waste into clean energy.
Powerhouse has developed a technology that provides a solution to plastic and produces a clean energy that can help improve air quality by replacing diesel with hydrogen as a transport fuel.
Powerhouse Energy’s mission is to provide flexible, innovative, solutions to global pollution by recycling plastic and waste into valuable clean energy products.
Powerhouse technology aims to be used at a local level providing a closed loop solution within the community for plastic waste, cleaning up our oceans and helping to accelerate the clean energy transition to reach the target of net zero emissions by 2030.
The Distributed Modular Generation (DMG®) technology can utilise all 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 GBP500,000 in respect of each project which is commissioned.
Powerhouse aims to license developers to deliver facilities that improve our environment for future generations.
Powerhouse is quoted on the London Stock Exchange’s AIM Market under the ticker: PHE and is incorporated in the United Kingdom.
