Protos 

 

The UK company said the £165m ($228m) Plastic Park will be located at Protos, near Ellesmere Port in Cheshire, and will cluster together innovative processing and treatment technologies to get the most value from plastic waste.

The UK’s first waste plastic to hydrogen facility, utilising Powerhouse Energy’s technology, and a polyethylene terephthalate recycling plant have already received planning consent to be located at the site.

Peel NRE is seeking planning approval for a number of further facilities which would provide capacity for up to 367,500 tonnes of mixed recyclables and plastic and save 170,000 tonnes of CO2 every year, while creating over 130 jobs.

On the plans, Richard Barker, Development Director at Peel NRE, said, 

“We’ll be able to take almost all types of plastic, providing a simple solution for local councils. We envision multiple Plastic Parks throughout the country which will help manage waste plastic on our own shores. This will allow us to create a circular economy, starting in the North West.”

Last week a company planning to produce hydrogen from waste plastic has signed a letter of intent to supply hydrogen for Element 2's proposed nationwide network of hydrogen refuelling stations.
