Carbon Capture and Storage on waste to energy plants – new partnerships and new solutions form part of the drive to net zero.

25/01/2021

Carbon Capture and Storage is a key part of the UK government’s 10 point plan to reach net zero by 2050, and is a critical element of the Industrial Strategy. The waste to energy industry is working out how best to employ CCS on plants – both in technical terms and critically, from a business and financial aspect.

The Energy from Waste virtual conference brings together key players from across the UK and Europe, to share knowledge gained so far on waste to energy-based CCS projects, including insights from Europe’s longest running CCS system on a waste to energy plant, at Fortum Oslo Varme, by project lead, Jannicke Bjerkas.

BEIS speaker, Carly Leighton, will be addressing the business model case for CCS in the UK and Christian Holzleitner, from the EU Innovation fund, will be speaking on financing projects.

In the UK, the very first proposed CCS project based on a waste to energy plant will be highlighted by Stuart Hayward-Higham, Technical Development Director, Suez recycling and recovery UK – the Suez plant at Teesside. An exciting, multi-partner project  in one of the UK’s flagship net zero industrial clusters, the proposed project will work with a number of world class industrial partners to decarbonize the region and move the carbon to a storage facility in the southern north sea. 

The importance of this project, and the others around the UK, are tremendous.  Waste to energy has a considerable role to play in the drive to net zero, and CCS looks like it’s going to be part of it.
