Grangemouth southampton South Wales HUMBERSIDE TEESSIDE Merseyside The UK todayIf we are to reduce the UK’s carbon emissions to Net Zero by 2050 we need a solution that works for the whole country. A solution that is cost-effective, can be done quickly that’s fair to the people who depend on those industries for work and the products they make. Largest UK industrial CO 2 emissions clusters * (based on 2017 EU-ETS data)
St. Fergus, Scotland.NECCUS supports many decarbonisation projects across Scotland. The first is being led by Pale Blue DotEnergy and is based at St Fergus gas terminal on the North East coast of Scotland.Phase one of the work there will see the installation of a carbon capture plant at the site to remove some 340,000 tonnes of carbon currently emitted from the terminal. This can be operational by the end of 2024.Phase two will focus on converting some of the North Sea natural gas that comes ashore at St Fergus into clean hydrogen.
Peterhead, Scotland.By the middle of the 2020s, as the CCS and hydrogen programmes expand, the focus will move six miles south to Peterhead, a port that has long been home to the ships and supply vessels that service the North Sea oil and gas industry. With more than 3km of deep water berthing space, it is a perfect location for a hydrogen and carbon transportation hub too. With easy access to the North Sea carbon storage site via infrastructure that’s, for the most part, already in place.
Grangemouth, Scotland. The next few years will see the project expanding to take captured carbon from other emitters across Scotland and transported over longer distances. Both carbon capture and hydrogen as a fuel source will become commonplace. Industries will also be able to scale-up the way CO 2 is utilised in manufacturing processes of products for packaging, construction, food and drink.

Transported by ship to Peterhead Port and connected by a pipeline network that for the most part is already in place and stored safely and permanently for hundreds of years. That’s cleaner industry, jobs safeguarded and the UK well on the way to meeting the ambitious targets it has set itself.
