Plastic-To-Hydrogen: Green Light For £21m Scottish Plant

Plans for a £20m facility in West Dunbartonshire that will turn plastic waste into hydrogen have been approved.

West Dunbartonshire Council has given the green light for the site at Rothesay Dock on the north bank of the River Clyde.

The plant, which will take an estimated 15 months to construct, will be the second of its kind in the UK.

The plans were lodged by Peel NRE, which is part of Peel L&P.

Peel said the facility would use new technology to create a local source of sustainable hydrogen from non-recyclable plastics otherwise destined for landfill, incineration or export overseas.

The hydrogen will be used as a clean fuel for HGVs, buses and cars, with plans for a linked hydrogen refuelling station on the site.

It follows a move by the UK government to double its hydrogen production capacity target by 2030 as part of the recently-published Energy Security Strategy.
