A decarbonised future
Plastic Green Power (PGP) is a UK based commercial project developer for low carbon solutions.
We're busy tackling regional waste issues whilst reducing reliance on fossil fuels and grid stability issues from intermittent renewable sources.
With your help, we will solve the disgusting mountainous problem of plastic waste and the world’s biggest energy issues.

It is high time we turn our attention fully to one of the most pressing problems of today – averting the plastic pollution crisis – not only for the health of our planet, but for the wellbeing of people around the world.- David Attenborough
A looming energy gap
The UK has committed to phasing out coal by 2025 and needs to retire existing nuclear plants. This has led to a reduction in baseload power generation capacity.
Although wind and solar plants attempt to combat this problem they are not sustainable or a cost-effective solution.
The number of plants that are needed to create the power level we need creates various knock-on effects such as danger to wildlife.
We need an alternative, viable solution.
How do we tackle
The initial mechanical process will automatically sort and grade waste materials to enable higher quantities of efficient recycling.
High-grade plastics are separated and recycled. These materials are then able to be reused with a huge environmental benefit.
We aim to achieve at least a 3x improvement on the existing 9% average of plastic recycling.
We've found a new use for waste plastic and have a patent pending process to convert to hybrid synthetic fuels for energy generation and remanufacturing. This system already has significant environmental savings compared to coal and oil.
Through gasification of non-recyclable waste plastic residue, we’re creating low carbon, stable electricity supply in flexible energy generation.
A market that’s forecast to grow 310% over the next fifteen years.
PGP aims to build a portfolio of sustainable facilities utilising robust technologies to tackle the growing waste management problem of plastics and the looming energy gap.
Our commercial scale sites integrate AMR and PWGP project phases to stack multiple revenue generation opportunities.
Over the next 5 years, we are targeting the development of 10 UK sites.
Advanced Mechanical Recycling (AMR)
A mechanical recycling system to sort and grade plastics and other useful materials from part processed waste.
Plastic Waste to Gas Power (PWGP)
Waste residue left from AMR will be converted into a low carbon gas and synthetic fuels derived from low tier waste to generate electricity and create new plastics.
Plastic Green Power has identified and agreed terms for three sites to develop recycling and energy generation projects. These projects require seed funding to reach financial close. The initial projects are forecast to be commercially viable, today, and are subject to commercial and technical due diligence and funding required to reach financial close.
