About the Yorkshire and Humber CCS Project
National Grid is helping to develop solutions to reduce the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from power stations and industrial plants in the Yorkshire and Humber region.
A solution being explored is carbon capture, transportation and storage technology – capturing carbon dioxide emissions and transporting them to be stored permanently beneath the seabed in natural porous rock formations or depleted oil and gas fields.
