PowerHouse Energy Group, focused on ultra-on high temperature waste-to-hydrogen and waste-to-energy systems, and the creator of Distributed Modular Gasification (DMG), said several multi-national suppliers' equipment had been shown to achieve the delivery of 99.999% pure hydrogen when used with DMG.

Linked to the above, and based on the results derived from independent third-party laboratory analysis which was then forwarded to one of its suppliers, that firm had agreed to provide its proprietary small-scale Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) equipment to produce "road-fuel quality" hydrogen.

That was, however, conditional on minor engineering detail and finalisation of commercial arrangements.

Keith Allaun, chief executive officer of Powerhouse, said the confirmation would help accelerate the company's commercial discussions with industrial transportation and other hydrogen road-fuel users.

"Achieving this confirmation was a pre-requisite for PowerHouse to accelerate its commercial discussions with industrial transportation and other hydrogen road-fuel users. It is a key component of our commercial plan – and l within our stated budget – and further underscores our intention to become one of the first waste-to-hydrogen road-fuel companies.

"Our successfully demonstrated and tested DMG technology – for the conversion of waste plastic, end-of-life tyres, and other industrial and municipal waste materials – is the enabling mechanism that we believe will allow the roll out of distributed hydrogen production and carbon-neutral hydrogen refueling stations in the UK and in a number of countries around the world."
