BEIS invites tenders for the first phase of its £20 million CCU Demonstration programme

As part of the Government’s Clean Growth Strategy BEIS will be allocating up to £20 million to design and construct carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) demonstration projects. This programme will encourage industrial sites to capture carbon dioxide which could then be used in industrial applications. This would help to enable a pathway for learning and development of capture technologies at an intermediate scale, reducing the costs and risks. The programme will be run in three phases:

Phase 1 will be an initial scoping study for an engineering supplier to work on BEIS’ behalf with potential host sites, carbon dioxide users and technology suppliers to produce site-specific cost estimates for deploying CCU at UK industrial sites.

Phase 2 will fund design studies and phase 3 will fund projects to construct and demonstrate CCU.
