HyNet – a hydrogen energy and carbon capture, usage and storage (CCUS) project aiming to reduce carbon emissions from industry, homes and transport, as well as support economic growth in the North West of England – has been awarded £800,000 by the UK Government.
Allocated by the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), a £500,000 award has been made to a consortium comprising of Johnson Matthey, as technical provider, SNC-Lavalin, as project delivery specialists, and led by project developer Progressive Energy.
The project comprises the development and deployment of a hydrogen production facility utilising Johnson Matthey’s high efficiency Low Carbon Hydrogen process located at Essar’s refinery at Stanlow.
This first plant alone will deliver 600,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide reductions per annum by displacing around 2% of the UK’s industrial demand for natural gas.
