UK’s largest energy from waste site looks to install CCS technology


UK-based energy from waste operator enfinium wants to integrate carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology at its Ferrybridge facility, the UK’s largest energy from waste site, in Knottingley, West Yorkshire.

Part of a £800m investment, the technology will capture around 1.2 million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) annually, including over 600,000 tonnes of high-quality carbon removals.

It is hoped that the CCS aspect of the site will be operational by 2030 and generate over 90MW of baseload, homegrown carbon-negative power.
