Parliamentary Committee on Carbon Capture Meets in Teesside

January 18, 2019

The Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) Select Committee has held a hearing at Tees Valley's Wilton Centre business and science park as part of its inquiry into the use of carbon capture, utilisation and storage in the UK.

On Thursday 17 January representatives for five of the UK’s key CCUS regions - Tees Valley, Humberside, Merseyside, South Wales and North East Scotland - addressed the panel, while also visiting sites including CF Fertilisers and Sembcorp, and meeting with local stakeholders.

The evidence hearing comes weeks after it the announcement of the multibillion-pound Clean Gas Project, a gas-powered energy plant backed by OG Climate Investments, a consortium of six of the world’s biggest energy companies.

The plant would become the world’s first gas-powered energy plant to fully deploy full-chain CCUS at scale, meaning carbon dioxide from Teesside industry would be captured and then stored via pipelines under the North Sea.

Tees Valley mayor Ben Houchen said: "We have a plan to make the Tees Valley the clean growth capital of the UK - and carbon capture, utilisation and storage is one major plank in that plan. People are clearly taking serious notice of our ambitions, demonstrated by this committee of MPs sitting in the region today.

"Carbon capture, utilisation and storage will help the UK meet its decarbonisation targets while playing to our history of innovation, boosting our local economy and providing good-quality jobs for years to come. I’ll be reading the findings of this committee with great interest as we continue in pole position for green energy projects, investment and funding." (Insider Media)
