“The Ferrybridge plant is the important step in scaling up CCS post combustion capture technology from R&D to the commercial plants that we anticipate will follow in the years after 2020,” Bjarne Korshøj, head of CCS at Vattenfall, said. “The results will be most valuable to us collaborating at Ferrybridge, but also for the CCS development in general. The world needs CCS to tackle climate change.”

Yorkshire, the location of Ferrybridge, has recently been named by UK Energy and Climate Change Secretary Ed Miliband as one of the first two low carbon economic area for Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS).
