Industry impressed by unifying project that could put the Humber ahead of the world
Big business has welcomed the call to action to bring a zero carbon economy to the Humber by 2040.
A major bid launched on Monday to gain the backing of government – and first the energy intensive community it could serve – with transformative solutions for a region with the highest emissions in the UK laid out.
About 40 delegates were briefed on the feasibility work conducted so far by joint venture partners in the anchor project featuring carbon capture, use and storage as well as hydrogen production.
Drax Group, Equinor and National Grid Ventures are spearheading it, working with Humber Local Enterprise Partnership and the regional process industry representative body Catch, as it looks to provide a pipeline others can feed into along both banks of the Humber, out to depleted oil and gas caverns beneath the North Sea.
