Lease agreed for ‘UK first’ waste-to-hydrogen plant

Energy-from-waste firm Waste2Tricity has announced plans to develop the UK's first industrial-scale plant capable of converting waste plastics into hydrogen.

The firm last week signed an agreement with development company Peel Environmental for a 124-year lease of a plot on its 54-acre Protos energy hub site in Cheshire. Waste2Tricity says it will submit a planning application for the plant this spring and hopes to commence work later this year.

The proposed £7m plant is intended to treat up to 25 tonnes of waste plastics a day that would otherwise go to landfill or incineration, according to Waste2Tricity.
