PowerHouse is the designer, creator, licensor and developer of a modular energy recovery system using renewable or waste feedstock (such as unrecyclable plastic) and owner of the DMG®Technology (Distributed Modular Generation).
The DMG® Technology has taken many years of research and development and has been the key focus of PowerHouse since its foundation, namely to engineer a technical solution to destroy waste and recover energy from within that waste, whilst producing an overall carbon emissions reduction.
Acquisition of W2T
PowerHouse acquire 100% of Waste2Tricity Ltd. allowing a clearer commercial model for customers and partners
Planning permission granted for first commercial application of DMG Technology, at Protos Energy Park
First commercial application site identified
DMG 40TPD Design
DMG commercial design throughput increased to 40 tonnes per day of waste plastic processing, generating up to 2 tonnes of road fuel quality hydrogen and 58MWh of exportable electricity per day
Peel Environmental, part of Peel L&P, who own and develop waste infrastructure projects sign up to become PowerHouse first customer and development partner for the Waste Plastic to Hydrogen DMG Technology
This independent review of DMG technology was undertaken by DNV GL, a global leader in technical assurance certification, awarding “Statement of Feasibility” in Phase one of the Technology Qualification process.
DMG 25TPD Design
The intense R&D effort together with the engineering process advances the technology
development to a commercial design of 25 tonnes of waste feedstock processing per day.
This is named “DMG”, for Distributed Modular Generation, which describes the community
based waste management and energy recovery solution.
Waste2Tricity Ltd the independent Energy from Waste company become development partners for PowerHouse technology, providing connections and business development services.
SLOW R&D PROGRESS
The Research and Development unit is relocate d from Australia to the UK, where it is rebuilt with various upgrades enabling technical advancement aligned with the engineering program
The R&D unit is relocated to Australia where trials and experimentation is undertaken with limited success and slow progress
A Research and Development unit is acquired in Switzerland, to provide a facility for trails relating to gasification and Pyrolysis conversion processes.
After many trials and dead ends, the Pyromex technology is abandoned as a failure, with the learnings added to PowerHouse experience
10 year old R&D facility in Germany acquired as part of Pyromex Technology acquisition
30% of Pyromex technology is acquired to try and find a waste solution using gasification
PowerHouse Energy Group PLC is floated on the London Stock Exchange Alternative Investment Market (AIM) under the ticker PHE
PowerHouse Energy is formed to research technologies in the waste and combined heat and power (CHP) arenas
