Major CCS project scrapped

Speaking in Parliament on Wednesday 19 October energy and climate change secretary Chris Huhne said the Government will not be providing funds to the proposed Longannet carbon capture and storage (CCS) project. Huhne said the Government will be working on other projects to develop commercial CCS. He said that ministers will meet with industry representatives on 2 November to discuss the future of CCS in the UK.
Carbon Capture and Storage Association chief executive Jeff Chapman told Businessgreen that important lessons have been learned, despite the failure of all of the original CCS projects put forward for £1bn in Government support. He said he was "very hopeful" CCS plants will be built in the UK by 2018.
