The CCSA is holding a webinar, UK CCUS Clusters Showcase: Part 2, on 29 September 2020 at 15.00-16.30 (BST).
Following the success of the “UK CCUS Clusters Showcase: Part 1” webinar which took place in July, the CCSA is now holding the second part of this webinar series.
Part 2 will feature presentations on the South Wales cluster and the North West cluster. These two clusters form an important part of the development of CCUS in the UK and together with projects being progressed in Scotland, Teesside and Humber, these projects will make a significant contribution to the decarbonisation of industry, power and clean hydrogen – thereby playing a vital role in achieving the UK’s net zero target. This webinar provides an opportunity to hear directly from the CCUS proposals in South Wales and the North West.
The webinar will take place on Tuesday 29th September 15.00 – 16.30 (UK time) via Zoom. Please sign up to the webinar using the link below:
The webinar will last one and a half hours and will consist of two presentations:
- Chris Williams (TATA Steel), South Wales Cluster
South Wales is home to some of the largest CO2 industry in the UK, particularly around Port Talbot, in which the largest steelworks in the UK exists.
To achieve net zero, a clustering group of major industrial companies in the region stretching from the Pembrokeshire Coast to the Severn Bridge along the M4 corridor, have partnered to take industry in South Wales to net zero emissions. The South Wales project will focus on the infrastructure required for the development of the hydrogen economy, for large scale CO2 capture (CCUS) and transport as well as onsite strategic opportunities to each industry. The projects also have the potential to strengthen the economic resilience of Welsh industry and communities by ensuring operations in the region are sustainable for the long term.
- Jonathan Collins (Cadent Gas), North West Cluster
The North West has been a centre for UK manufacturing since the industrial revolution and hosts a range of energy intensive users in textiles, shipping and engineering.
The cluster is home to the most advanced hydrogen and carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) project in the UK which could see hydrogen blended into the gas grid and piped into homes and businesses by 2024. The project will initially save one million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions every year (rising to up to 10 million tonnes per year), creating a no- regrets, replicable model for the rest of the UK and beyond.
Following these presentations, a Q&A session will commence, dictated by the meeting Chair. The webinar chat function will be used for question entries and queries.
