Charley - how is hydrogen from plastic clean? Even if plastic ends up in a landfill, it's sequestered indefinitely, and far better for the environment than converting it to methane then burning it. And despite the technobabble being used to describe Peel L&P's "Distributed Modular Generation" process, that's exactly what's happening:

"The Thermal Conversion Chamber operates without oxygen, so there is no burning, however a non-combusting oxidising agent in the form of steam is added to control the process and the quality of the syngas."

It's not steam reforming but "thermal conversion", using an oxygen-free "oxidising" agent. Got it!

It's perhaps 'cleaner' than alternatives. It's not green as per renewable but perhaps better in the round than alternatives.  Lots of global interest in the concept as well.
