Zero Carbon Humber

Zero Carbon Humber (ZCH) along with the Net Zero Teesside (NZT) and the Northern Endurance Partnership (NEP) constitute the East Coast cluster which is the most carbon intensive industrial cluster in UK. The Zero Carbon Humber projects will enable hydrogen economy, large-scale industrial carbon capture and bioenergy with CCS (BECCS) in the Humber region that will result in the capture and store of up to 8Mtpa of CO2 by 2030. Northern Endurance Partnership (NEP) which BP leads as operator, will provide the infrastructure needed to transport (via an offshore pipeline 103 km) and permanently store the captured CO2 at the at the Endurance aquifer (North Sea).
