How is Hydrogen Developing in the North West of the UK?
As the North West and Wales commit to carbon capture and storage methods for hydrogen production, HIL explains how it will be implemented.
HyNet North West is a ground-breaking clean energy project aiming to unlock a low carbon future for the North West and North Wales.
It plans to build a low-carbon hydrogen production (LCH) plant at Stanlow Refinery together with carbon capture and storage (CCS).
Afterwards, this will be transported by pipeline and provided for industrial, transport, home, and business use. These technologies have the potential to reduce CO2 emissions by 10 million tonnes every year by 2030.
The project has hit its first major milestone by beginning the planning process for the pipeline infrastructure and is on course to meet its target date.
