Six UK projects get share of funding for industrial decarbonisation
THE UK Government has awarded a share of £8m (US$11m) to six regional projects to develop ways to cut emissions from industry.
The funding is part of the Industrial Decarbonisation Challenge, which will commit £170m to decarbonising industry through technologies such as CCS and hydrogen production. This is the second phase of the Challenge, with the six projects having already secured funding last year in the first phase for feasibility studies. The projects are run by consortiums consisting of industries, local authorities, and public bodies.
