Eni, being the operator of the transport and storage of carbon dioxide for the HyNet CCS project, announced that a new landmark development has contributed to its strategy to play a key role in the UK’s decarbonization.
The UK Department for Energy Security and Net Zero (DESNZ) announced that carbon capture projects that will access the £20 billion in funding provided by the government for Track 1 initiatives.
The United Kingdom, which has identified the capture, transport, and storage of CO2 as one of the fundamental tools for achieving the objectives in the fight against climate change, will be positioned as one of the leading countries for the development of carbon, capture, and storage (CCS) by implementing the HyNet CCS project.
CCS is a technological process that avoids the release of carbon dioxide emissions from industrial activities into the atmosphere. CCS plays a fundamental role in the decarbonization of “hard to abate” sectors, for which there are currently no equally effective solutions.
Eni is proud to support the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero’s plan to decarbonize industry by using the secure and effective CCS technology, which can be used in conjunction with other significant energy transition initiatives like, for instance, the project to generate renewable energy from the Dogger Bank offshore wind farm.
