Teesside Collective: Launch of Blueprint reports

Wednesday 1st July 2015

Over the past year, Teesside Collective has been developing the case for the establishment of Europe’s first carbon capture and storage (CCS) equipped industrial zone in Teesside.

A unique collaboration between a cluster of major industrial employers and other interested organisations including BOC, GrowHow, Lotte Chemical, SSI, Tees Valley Unlimited, NEPIC and National Grid –  we are promoting Europe’s leading industrial CCS project.

Sponsored by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and advised by Pale Blue Dot, Amec Foster Wheeler, Societe Generale and Cambridge Econometrics, we are now in a positon to publish an overall business case for an industrial CCS network across Teesside, engineering studies on the feasibility of carbon capture on four separate industrial processes and recommendations for a financial support mechanism.

This is an important milestone for a project with the potential to bring substantial economic and environmental benefits to Tees Valley and the UK as a whole.

The reports will be formally launched on 1st July 2015 by Teesside Collective and the Carbon Capture and Storage Association (CCSA), and will be made available on our website.

We will be celebrating the launch with stakeholders on 1st and 2nd July in London and Teesside. For any queries regarding the launch events, please refer to information provided in your invitation, or contact info@teessidecollective.co.uk.

In the meantime, we encourage you to follow developments in the run up to the launch via our Twitter feed @TeesCollective.
