Humber could become ‘world’s first net-zero region’, says new energy partnership

The Humber region has the potential to house a zero-carbon industrial cluster if investments in hydrogen and carbon capture, storage and use are scaled up, according to a group of three energy companies.

Drax Group, Equinor and National Grid Ventures have pledged to work together on scaling up a pilot project capturing carbon dioxide emitted from Drax’s biomass power plants.

The project currently captures a tonne of carbon dioxide a day, but could be scaled up to receive as much as 90% of the emissions from Drax’s four biomass units - roughly 40,000 tonnes a day.
