HeidelbergCement Joins HyNet Low-Carbon Ind. Cluster (Int'l.)
HeidelbergCement,Progressive Energy
Date: 2021-03-05
HeidelbergCement's British subsidiary Hanson UK has become a partner in the HyNet North West consortium, which aims to create the world's first low-carbon industrial cluster in the northwest England, covering the largest concentration of advanced manufacturing and chemical production in the UK

As a first step, a feasibility study will be conducted to provide a clear design basis and cost estimate for a carbon capture facility at Hanson's Padeswood cement plant and connection to the proposed HyNet North West CO2 network and storage system. The project will reduce regional CO2 emissions by up to 10 million tpy by 2030.

The HyNet North West project includes production, storage and distribution of low carbon hydrogen which will help to decarbonise other industries whose CO2 emissions primarily come from fossil fuels.

The HyNet project is led by Progressive Energy along with regional partners Cadent, CF Fertilisers, Eni UK, Essar, INOVYN, the University of Chester as well as Hanson.

UK Hydrogen Project Transition to Low-Carbon Economy (Int'l.)
ESSAR,Progressive Energy
Date: 2021-01-13
Andhra Pradesh-based Indian energy company ESSAR Oil Ltd. reports it plans to construct the UK's largest low carbon hydrogen production hub to support the country's transition to a more environmentally sustainable economy. The £750 million investment in two plants will be made jointly with clean energy specialist Progressive Energy as part of its HyNet scheme, a project to supply low carbon hydrogen to industrial sites and homes in north-west England.

The plants well be constructed next to its Progressive Energy's Stanlow refinery on the Mersey estuary in north-west England. Natural gas, and fuel gases from the refinery, will be converted into low carbon hydrogen, with carbon dioxide captured and stored (CCS) in depleted undersea gasfields 60km offshore in Liverpool Bay. The refinery will be converted to burn hydrogen instead of natural gas. (Source: Essar, PR, FT, Jan., 2021) Contact: Essar, +91 89125 23213,; Progressive Energy,
