Decade will be ‘critical’ for CCUS to move from planning to operation

THE UK Government has published its response to a 2019 consultation on business models for carbon capture, usage, and storage (CCUS). The response sets out progress made on business models to incentivise CCUS and the new carbon capture and storage (CCS) infrastructure fund announced in the UK’s spring budget.

The CCUS consultation ran from 22 July to 16 September last year. The recent response by Government summarises consultation feedback received and the Government’s view on potential CCUS business models for industry, power, carbon dioxide (CO2) transport and storage, and action needed on low-carbon hydrogen production to enable CCUS deployment in the 2020s, including a CCUS delivery action plan; and objectives and principles for CCUS deployment.

The Government’s response to the consultation comprises six sections, including deploying CCUS in the 2020s, and industrial CCUS.
