Hydrogen Utopia International (HUI) and Linde will look to deploy Powerhouse Energy’s unique waste-to-hydrogen system in Poland. This is expected to progress with Linde finalising a technical feasibility evaluation to deploy the syngas cleanup and hydrogen extraction of Powerhouse Energy’s DMG technology.
The feasibility study envisages a plant to be jointly developed by Linde, HUI and Powerhouse in Konin. It is expected that, once operational, the facility will convert 40 tonnes of plastic waste into 58MW of renewable electricity and clean hydrogen per day.
The hydrogen produced will then be used locally as a fuel for city buses and other heavy-duty vehicles in addition to passenger cars. The DMG system will additionally provide heat to the citizens of Konin thanks to the central heating system.
Aleksandra Binkowska, CEO of Hydrogen Utopia International, said, “We are proud to have Linde, who are proven hydrogen experts, on board of this project.”
