The University of Chester’s Energy Centre at Thornton Science Park is working with PowerHouse Energy to ‘turn off the plastic tap into the ocean’ to ultimately clean it up. The innovative technology turns waste plastic into electricity and low-cost hydrogen, which can be used for transport fuel. The process takes all mixed waste plastic in an untreated unsorted contaminated form and requires no sorting or washing. This ground breaking technology has the potential to not only create a green fuel but to clean up plastic from the world’s oceans.
