Humber and Teesside join forces to form East Coast CCS Cluster
The Northern Endurance Partnership (NEP), Net Zero Teesside and Zero Carbon Humber initiatives have joined forces to create the East Coast Cluster, which they claim has the potential to capture, transport and store up to 27mn t/y of CO2 emissions by 2030 and could support an average of more than 25,000 jobs a year between 2023 and 2050.
The two regions of Humber and Teesside are reported to account for nearly 50% of all UK industrial cluster emissions.
The East Coast Cluster offers a diverse mix of low carbon projects, including industrial carbon capture, low carbon hydrogen production, negative emissions power, and power with carbon capture.
Meanwhile, Ineos and Petroineos at Grangemouth are understood to have joined the Scottish CCS Cluster, partnering with the Acorn Project which plans to capture and store 1mn tCO2/y by 2027.
