East Coast and HyNet win CCS funding

Both feature blue hydrogen in their plans to develop low-carbon clusters to cut industry emissions

The UK’s HyNet North West and East Coast Cluster have been confirmed as the first low-carbon clusters that will receive state funding to develop blue hydrogen projects. As part of a ten-point plan outlined in December, the UK announced it would provide £1bn ($1.4bn) to support the development of industrial carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) clusters around the country. Two industrial clusters will be established by the mid-2020s in the first phase, with a further two by 2030 in the second.
