UK Government unveils CCUS phase 2 shortlist


The UK Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy has unveiled 20 potential carbon capture and storage sites in a recently released phase 2 shortlist

The shortlist does not imply availability of funding for any of the projects but the outcome of assessment against criteria.

The 20 projects represent a range of CCUS technologies which can accelerate decarbonisation across the country, kick start the hydrogen economy and create a pathway for sustainable power supplies by 2035.

The majority of sites are in the East Coast Cluster, covering CF Fertilisers Billingham Ammonia CCS; Tees Valley Energy Recovery Facility Project (TVERF); Norsea Carbon Capture; Redcar Energy Centre; Teesside Hydrogen CO2 Capture; Humber Zero – Phillips 66 Humber Refinery; Prax Lindsey Oil Refinery Carbon Capture Project; and ZerCaL250; bpH2Teesside; H2NorthEast; and HydrogenToHumber (H2H) Saltend.
