Turning Waste Plastic Into Hydrogen – Is This The Future?

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on H2 View.

This paragraph is a description of the process from Myles Kitcher of Peel L&P Environmental.

At Peel L&P Environmental we’ve been working with PowerHouse Energy who have developed a world first plastic to hydrogen technology. The first plant at Protos, our strategic energy and resource hub in Cheshire, is due to start construction later this year. It will take unrecyclable waste plastic – destined for landfill, or worse export overseas – and use it to create a local source of clean hydrogen to fuel buses, Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs) and cars. Not only will this help reduce air pollution and improve air quality on local roads, it’s helping us deal with the pressing problem of plastic waste.

This sounds like an eminently sensible way of dealing with unrecyclable waste plastic.

  1. That does indeed sound an excellent idea. As does cleaner air. When people were actually following the lockdown and staying indoors etc, the air felt beautifully clean and fresh. Now the roads are busy and the planes are flying, it is back to how it was. I have been testing my 02 sats several times a day, and if there is a sustained drop below 95 I am to be tested for covid. But it is rarely below 98, and my heart rate is good too. So the less clean air isn’t causing me problems, but that is possibly because I am not outdoors very much. And we are in the higher level of lockdown again here. But the people who have been following the rules up to now, such as Neil and I, will follow the new ones, and the people who have been ignoring the rules because they think they are too young, too healthy or not poor enough to catch the virus, will continue to totally ignore the rules.
