Zero Carbon Humber is a partnership of twelve organisations committed to decarbonising the UK's largest emitting industrial region through carbon capture, hydrogen and negative emission projects, linked by common regional infrastructure.
It has united with Net Zero Teesside and the offshore Northern Endurance Partnership to create the East Coast Cluster, which stands ready to remove nearly 50% of the UK's industrial cluster carbon emissions.
Zero Carbon Humber (ZCH) includes ABP, British Steel, Centrica Storage, Drax, Equinor, Mitsubishi Power, National Grid, px Group, SSE Thermal, Triton Power, Uniper and University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Centre (AMRC).
The ZCH Partnership has a shared ambition to make the Humber industrial region net zero by 2040 through low carbon hydrogen, carbon capture and carbon removal technology, enabled by shared regional pipelines for hydrogen and carbon emissions and the common offshore NEP infrastructure.
With its first projects aiming to start up in the mid-2020s, ZCH aims to capture at least 17 million tonnes of CO2 emissions per year and supply up to 10 gigawatts of hydrogen in industry and power projects across the Humber by the mid-2030s. This could reduce the UK’s annual emissions by 15% and safeguard 55,000 existing jobs in the region, whilst creating thousands of new STEM roles and developing skills, apprenticeships and educational opportunities in the area.
