The Carbon Capture and Storage Association (CCSA) has welcomed the Prime Minister’s announcement to invest £800m in the infrastructure needed to establish Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) clusters.

Commenting on the Prime Minister’s announcement, Luke Warren, CCSA Chief Executive, said, “Yesterday’s announcement of significant funding for CCS infrastructure, is extremely welcome.”

“Building CCS infrastructure around the UK which can be shared by different sectors of our economy is key to delivering net zero and clean growth. This infrastructure can underpin the development of competitive, low-carbon industry, realise the hydrogen economy and deliver clean power plants and greenhouse gas removal technologies.”

“Investing in CCS infrastructure can put the UK at the forefront of the low-carbon industrial revolution and create the clean industries of the future.”

“We look forward to seeing the details of this policy announcement.”
