Teesside’s carbon capture, usage and storage (CCUS) project known as ‘Net Zero Teesside’, which could capture the equivalent of a million homes worth of carbon emissions, is holding public consultation events this month.
The project is supported by the Oil and Gas Climate Initiative (OCGI), a voluntary group comprising 13 leading companies operating in the energy sector and could potentially be the first commercial CCUS project in the UK. The project could see up to 4,000 direct and indirect jobs created during construction.
Energy expert view
“Good to see progress on Teesside with carbon capture, utilisation and storage. It would be fantastic if the Teesside project could be developed as an exemplar for the implementation of CCUS technology in a viable manner and certainly an opportunity given the support of major energy sector operators.” Alastair Fells MEI, Incorporated Eng, PG Dip Fuel Tech, BSc Hons
