Government’s 10 Point Plan Sets Out Ambitious Commitment for CCUS

Posted on: November 17th, 2020 by ccsaEditor

EMBARGOED TO 22.30 TUESDAY 17 NOVEMBER 2020, London – The Carbon Capture and Storage Association (CCSA), the trade body for the Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS) industry in the UK, welcomes the release of the Government’s 10 Point Plan for A Green Industrial Revolution.

As part of this plan, the Government has announced a target to capture 10 million tonnes of carbon dioxide by 2030 and to establish four carbon capture clusters with the first of these operating from the mid-2020s.  The Government has also established bold new targets for clean hydrogen which will also be enabled by the carbon capture clusters.

Luke Warren, Chief Executive of the CCSA, said:

“This is a really ambitious and serious commitment to carbon capture and hydrogen by the Government and one we really welcome. By investing in carbon capture hubs in all the main industrial regions of the country, the Government has today sent a strong signal ahead of COP26 – that the UK is committed to delivering net zero and becoming a world leader in the key technologies that will be essential to achieve these goals.

Establishing four carbon capture clusters will make a significant contribution to supporting our industrial regions to reduce their emissions while also creating tens of thousands of highly-skilled jobs in the new, low-carbon industries of the future.

This is the start of a really exciting era for the development of carbon capture in the UK and there is an incredible amount of work that is needed to enable these targets to be reached. However, the CCUS industry stands ready to work with Government to deliver these targets and ensure that the UK does become a global leader in this crucial technology”.

CCUS, or Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage, is a key low carbon solution – vital to meeting the UK’s statutory Net Zero target at least cost. CCUS enables the production of clean power, clean products (such as steel and cement) and clean hydrogen – which can then be used to decarbonise heating and transport. In addition, CCUS can be combined with sustainable bioenergy to deliver negative emissions.

The UK is fortunate to have advanced CCUS project proposals in all of the major industrial regions; including Humber, Teesside, Merseyside, Scotland and South Wales. These projects demonstrate the breadth of applications and industries for which CCUS provides a vital net zero solution.
