Humber Zero, how our journey starts to support it
Next week, Dr Olu Baptist, Commercial Director and Alan Taylor, Business Development Manager at Sterling TT, will attend the ‘Humber Zero Carbon Capture Supply Chain Engagement Day’.
When we asked them why it was important to attend this event, Alan explained that “Humber Zero is a project that aims to decarbonise industry at scale. It will remove up to 8 million tonnes per annum of CO2, creating a low carbon future for the Humber industry.” Olu added, “It’s a project that involves hydrogen production and carbon capture utilising new technology, and Sterling TT can be a key player through our heat exchange solutions”.
Humber Zero Carbon is located on the south bank of the Humber, a large tidal estuary on the east coast of Northern England. The investment is estimated at more than £1 billion, and further investment is expected in additional stages of the project to exceed £2 billion. Humber Zero is a project with immediate impact for reduced emissions while preserving jobs and maintaining the Humber’s role as an industrial hub.
The EIC, Energy Industries Council, explains that “the project incorporates a cluster of energy-intensive industries that lie 1km from the coastline on the south bank of the River Humber. Close to offshore gas storage fields and sitting along a key pipeline route identified by National Grid to connect and decarbonise other key industries in the southern Humber, it is an ideal gateway project for large-scale decarbonisation in the wider region”.
Our colleagues look forward to hearing and networking with the Humber Zero partners, VPI Immingham, Phillips 66 and Worley.
