Powerhouse Energy (LON: PHE) shares are on the rise on Wednesday after the company said that Peel NRE, part of Peel L&P, has submitted a planning application to develop its second waste plastic to hydrogen facility using Powerhouse technology.
The site will be located at the Rothesay Dock on the north bank of the River Clyde, West Dunbartonshire.
The 13,500-tonne facility will be the second in the UK to use DMG technology, which is developed by Powerhouse, after plans for a similar facility at Peel NRE’s Protos site in Cheshire were approved in 2019.
Peel NRE has submitted a planning application to West Dunbartonshire Council.
Tim Yeo, Executive Chairman of Powerhouse, said: “We welcome the submission of the planning application for a second site for our recycling technology which will transform plastics and waste into clean energy. We hope this pioneering technology will play an important role in supporting the objective of both Holyrood and Westminster to make hydrogen a key element of Scotland’s decarbonisation strategy.
“A planned hydrogen refuelling station at this site will help bolster the region’s infrastructure and help accelerate the clean energy transition, improving our environment for future generations in the region.”
Powerhouse's share price has climbed to 3.829, up 5.99%.
