PowerHouse Energy PLC (LON:PHE) said it will site its gasification unit in the north-west when it arrives here in the UK next month.
The University of Chester’s Thornton Science Park will be host to the breakthrough technology.
Working with Waste2tricity and Peel Environmental, PowerHouse hopes to connect the G3-UHt system to the micro-grid supplying power to the park.
At the heart of the ultra-high temperature gasification unit is a reactor that works oxygen-free at ultra-high temperatures to atomise virtually all household or industrial waste.
What’s created is a synthesis gas, or syngas for short, that can be used to generate electricity.
