Teesside Collective: A proposition for an Industrial CCS pilot

Teesside Collective is a ready-made, cost-effective opportunity for Britain to start removing damaging carbon dioxide from its vital process and chemical industries. With one of the highest concentrations of industry in the country, and located close to North Sea carbon storage sites, a Carbon Capture and Storage network in Teesside will be as significant as offshore wind and new nuclear …

Teesside Collective Report: A business case for a UK Industrial CCS support mechanism

Teesside Collective has developed a viable financial support mechanism to kick-start a unique Industrial CCS network in Teesside. This project would transform the Tees Valley economy, and could be replicated across the country as part of the UK’s Industrial Strategy. The final report from this work – produced by Pöyry Management Consulting in partnership with Teesside Collective – outlines how near-term …

SCCS: Use it or lose it – UK has offshore assets and opportunity to meet zero carbon ambitions but door is closing fast, says new report

The UK Government is planning tighter climate laws to deliver net zero carbon emissions – but how? A new report shows how the UK’s unique assets can be used to support this ambition cost-effectively through carbon capture and storage (CCS) but warns that this opportunity must be grasped now, with strategic policy to regain lost momentum. As MPs and external …

Teesside Collective Reports: Blueprint for Industrial CCS in the UK

In July 2015, with support from the former Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and the former Department for Business Innovation and Skills (BIS), as well as advice from leading engineering and financial consultants,  Teesside Collective produced a technically viable, end-to-end blueprint for a shared industrial CCS network in the UK. This set out the economic and environmental benefits …

GCCSI webinar: The UK’s first industrial CCS cluster

Friday 24th April 2015, 8:30AM - 9:30AM

Organised by the Global CCS Institute, Sarah Tennison of Teesside Collective hosted a webinar to introduce Teesside Collective and talk about the project findings to date. The widespread application of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology on industrial processes such as steel, chemical and cement manufacturing, is increasingly recognised as a key priority for tackling CO2 emissions from these vital energy intensive industries. The industrial CCS initiative being …

DECC: Industrial Decarbonisation and Energy Efficiency Roadmaps to 2050

The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) has released its Industrial Decarbonisation and Energy Efficiency Roadmaps to 2050, a set of reports which detail potential pathways for the eight most heat-intensive industrial sectors to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve energy efficiency. The eight industries featured in the reports include iron and steel; chemicals; oil refining; food and drink; …

Green Alliance: Decarbonising British industry – why industrial CCS clusters are the answer

In its effort to shift to a low carbon economy, the government is exploring new carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies to mitigate CO2 emissions from existing fossil fuel power stations. New analysis from think tank Green Alliance highlights that CCS is the only technology available to decarbonise heavy industry to the extent needed to meet carbon targets and protect …
