CCUS deployment at dispersed UK industrial sites

Aug 23 2020


An independent report identifying and assessing high-level deployment options for carbon capture, usage and storage technology at dispersed industrial sites in the UK has been published by the Government.

The report identifies and assesses a range of high-level deployment options for industrial carbon capture, usage and storage (CCUS) technology located in non-clustered ‘dispersed’ sites that are isolated from potential carbon dioxide transport infrastructure in the UK.

It provides:

  • an identification of the challenges and barriers to CCUS deployment specifically at these dispersed sites
  • an appraisal of the range of high-level options for CCUS deployment and the risks associated with each challenge
  • an assessment of the most promising options based on their cost, risk and emission reduction potential

BEIS commissioned Element Energy to produce the report.
