„The UK government has selected two sites in the north of England to develop multibillion-pound carbon capture projects by the middle of the decade as part of its fast-track scheme to cut 20-30m tonnes of CO2 a year from heavy industry by 2030.“
„Carbon capture storage offers a vital tool in the the road to net zero but current efforts are dwarfed by the size of the challenge and the UK is littered with pilot projects that fell by the wayside. Can the technology finally fulfill its promise?“
„Renewable energy giant Drax is one of just a dozen green companies selected to take part in the government’s Global Investment Summit next week. The event, hosted by the prime minister and the royal family, will showcase the opportunities for investment in the U.K., demonstrating the government’s commitment to building back better following the Covid-19 pandemic and delivering the Ten-Point-Plan set out last year. Drax will showcase its multi-billion-pound innovative negative emissions technology, bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS), which permanently removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and will be needed for the U.K. to reach its climate targets cost effectively.“
The Scotsman: Climate change: Hydrogen and carbon-capture can play a key part in Scotland’s transition to a green economy– Paul McLennan MSP
„The Scottish Cluster Campaign brings together key stakeholders from across the Scottish economy to create a pathway towards decarbonisation of Scottish and UK industry.“
„Global consulting and engineering company Wood has won a contract to work on UK hybrid carbon capture and storage (CCUS) and hydrogen project Humber Zero.“
„Renewable energy giant Drax is calling on UK businesses to help deliver pioneering climate saving negative emissions technology. The huge electricity generator wants firms of all sizes to join the UK’s first bioenergy with carbon capture and storage supplier engagement programme.“
