Joint Press Statement from The CCSA and the TUC

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) could create thousands of jobs across Yorkshire, the Humber and the Tees Valley, the TUC and Carbon Capture Storage Association (CCSA) will say at a regional CCS event in Leeds later today (Friday).

The TUC and CCSA will argue that the concentration of coal and gas-fired power stations, energy intensive industries and proximity to a significant carbon dioxide storage capacity located deep under the North Sea makes the area well placed to benefit from CCS technology. CCS would enable both power stations and heavy industry to reduce their carbon emissions and could also help maintain the UK’s coal industry.
