Decarbonisation

Decarbonisation through Carbon Capture and Storage

HyNet North West and the Northern Endurance Partnership are the UK’s leading industrial decarbonisation projects, which will unlock a low carbon future. These projects will meet the major challenge of reducing carbon dioxide emissions, whilst providing low carbon heating and power for industry and transport and low carbon heating for our homes and businesses.

CF Fertilisers Carbon Capture and Storage

CF has submitted bids into the Carbon Capture and Storage competition run by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) for new carbon capture plants to be constructed at both the Billingham and Ince sites. In the previous phase of the competition, we assisted the successful bids by the Northern Endurance Partnership (North East) and Hynet (North West) projects, which resulted in these two regional clusters being selected by government as the first two Carbon Capture and Storage projects to be constructed in the UK, with the two projects expected to become operational in the mid-2020s.

The new CF Capture plants will enable the carbon dioxide which is already captured at a very high efficiency in our Ammonia plant CO2 Removal sections to be stored by these regional cluster projects. Our new plants will compress, cool and purify this captured CO2 for supply into the carbon dioxide transport and storage networks. The new plants will have the capacity to further reduce our greenhouse gas emissions at each site by an additional 60%.

The captured CO2 will be permanently and securely stored in a saline aquifer under the North Sea (North East) and redundant gas fields in Liverpool Bay (North West).

This will be a great step towards further decarbonising our UK operations, reducing our exposure to carbon costs and enabling us to be one of the first in the industry to make low carbon products available to our customers.
