Shell to supply carbon capture tech for multi-billion-pound Humber Zero


A government-backed multi-billion-pound initiative to decarbonise the Immingham industrial area in northern Lincolnshire, England, is set to be supported by Shell Catalysts & Technologies (Shell) through the appoint of its CANSOLV CO2 Carbon Capture Technology (CANSOLV).

Shell will provide CANSOLV for retrofitting at two of three gas-fired power generators at VPI Immingham Ltd (VPI Immingham)’s power station to support the capture of carbon-rich flu gas. 

Alongside Technip Energie’s capture unit and pilot plant, the technology is set to capture 95% or more of the carbon dioxide (CO2) in the emitted flu gas before it’s compressed, transported and stored in underground geological structures. 

With the project aiming to prevent up to eight million tonnes of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere, Humber Zero could play a key role in helping the UK achieve its net zero ambitions by 2050.
