PowerHouse Energy Group Plc (LON:PHE), the company focused on ultra high temperature gasification waste to energy systems and the creator of Distributed Modular Gasification© (DMG), has today announced that it has now moved its G3-UHt unit to Unit 99 at the Thornton Science Park, operated by the University of Chester.
The relocation of the G3-UHt unit follows the successful first phase of re-commissioning which recently delivered the production of synthesis gas (“syngas”). As previously announced, PowerHouse has secured a two year lease of a purpose built emission laboratory, together with offices, at Thornton Science Park which will provide both testing capabilities and provide a base to showcase its technology to potential customers.
Thornton Science Park is a major research and innovation hub and was formerly the Shell Technology Centre. It is an emerging centre of excellence for the energy, engineering and advanced manufacturing industries, so is the ideal location for PowerHouse.
Keith Allaun, Executive Chairman of PowerHouse Energy Group Plc, said: “The relocation of the G3-UHt unit to Thornton Science Park Unit 99 will serve the Company well as we continue the development of its automation processes at this new facility. We look forward to demonstrating the technology of the G3-UHt unit to interested parties and the public over the coming months, as we begin our journey to commercial success. Distributed Modular Gasification© is a highly disruptive philosophy and one that will change the waste-to-energy market significantly. We foresee Unit 99 being the hub of tremendous activity and innovation for the future of PowerHouse.”
