Over the weekend, the Mail on Sunday’s This is Money supplement reported that Powerhouse Energy’s (LON:PHEG) business partner, Hydrogen Utopia International (HUI), was close to signing a deal with Linde (DE:LINI) to roll out energy plants across Europe.
Powerhouse Energy, which has developed technology to produce hydrogen from waste plastic, noted those comments and provided an update on the potential agreement.
The company said Linde has finalised a technical feasibility evaluation to deploy the syngas clean-up and hydrogen extraction of Powerhouse Energy’s DMG technology.
HUI, which is a licensee of Powerhouse’s technology, is in discussions with Linde to enter an agreement to develop a plant in Konin, Poland which would use Powerhouse’s technology.

The Mail on Sunday also noted that HUI is weighing a listing on the London market, after recently appointing brokers.
