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.”
