What is carbon capture, usage and storage (CCUS)?

Carbon capture, usage and storage (CCUS) is a process which removes carbon dioxide emissions from industrial processes and power generation and transports them to secure storage areas.

Several industrial sites in the Humber region are developing plans to capture their carbon emissions and we anticipate other carbon capture projects are likely to come forward in the near future.

The Humber Carbon Capture Pipeline is an essential part of carbon capture, usage and storage on the Humber and would provide the infrastructure required to transport the captured carbon dioxide to secure storage.

The carbon dioxide would be stored in geological formations under the North Sea. The offshore transportation infrastructure and storage facility is subject to a different consenting process.
