North West Hydrogen Projects Secure £13m Boost

18 February 2020

A pair of world-first hydrogen projects in the North West led by the HyNet consortium have secured a £13m boost.

The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) is behind the cash injection, which forms part of a £90m initiative designed to cut carbon emissions in industry and homes.

The first of the two projects backed is a low carbon hydrogen plant at Essar Oil UK's Stanlow refinery in Ellesmere Port, securing £7.5m. The facility will produce 3TWh of low carbon hydrogen – double the UK's total current production of biomethane – which will be provided to industrial and eventually domestic customers in the region.

When operational, it will capture 600,000 tonnes of CO2 per annum – the equivalent of taking more than 250,000 cars off the road.
