Second U.K. Natural Gas Station Planned With Carbon Capture

  • Station could be online by 2026 if final investment goes ahead
  • Plant will capture 15% of government’s 2030 CCS target

SSE Plc and Equinor ASA will jointly develop a new clean gas-fired power station with carbon capture technology in Scotland.

Carbon capture and storage technology, which removes the pollutants created by burning fossil fuels, could help secure a long-term role for gas in electricity generation. Overall, the U.K. wants to capture 10 million tons of carbon dioxide a year by 2030. So far the technology has not been delivered anywhere at in the world successfully at a competitive price.
