CCS to create blue hydrogen from natural gas – Zero Carbon Humber
The Humber region is the perfect location for the construction of a large-scale ‘blue’
hydrogen plant where the CO2 emissions from hydrogen production are captured and
stored. By Stephen B. Harrison, sbh4 consulting
Carbon Capture for marine and offshore industries
Carbon Capture is a potential supplemental solution for reducing a vessel or offshore
unit’s overall carbon footprint says the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) in an article
as part of its Offshore Thought Leadership Series

Equinor has already signed MOUs with 9 companies around Europe for its Longship
CO2 storage project. By Karl Jeffery
Advances in Direct Air Capture of CO2
If combined with low carbon energy and CO2 storage Direct Air Capture is a viable
negative emissions technology, but rapid scale up is required to meet climate goals
and costs remain high. A report from the Catalyst Group Resources
Capture and utilisation
O.C.O Technology working on new mineralisation opportunities
Having comercialised a process that uses carbon dioxide as a resource to treat a wide
