Scottish Cluster to help lower Thames Estuary CO2 emissions


A large-scale decarbonisation scheme has been agreed upon between carbon dioxide (CO2) capture project Acorn CCS (Acorn) and Project Cavendish – a collaboration between several energy players.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between the two projects will see 700MW of energy generated in South East England decarbonised through the Acorn CO2 transport and storage system.

Acorn will help reduce carbon emissions at Project Cavendish, a low carbon hydrogen production facility based in the Thames Estuary, set to take place by early 2027. This reduction will occur through capture of CO2 emitted through hydrogen production before being stored using Acorn’s transport and storage solution.

Considered a core part of the Scottish cluster of decarbonisation projects, Acorn intends to deliver low-cost carbon capture and storage (CCS) in North-East Scotland by 2023.
