Net Zero

Net Zero Teesside

Capturing up to 10million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions a year.

We’re serious about the future, and as the UK’s carbon capture capital we’re pushing the Government’s carbon-neutral agenda. Based at Teesworks and in partnership with local industry and world class partners, Net Zero Teesside aims to deliver the UK’s first zero-carbon industrial cluster, capturing the same amount of energy annually as more than three million homes.

As a Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS) project, Net Zero Teesside is set to decarbonise the area’s carbon-intensive businesses by as early as 2030. In-line with national efforts and Teesworks’ clean energy commitment, it will help reduce impact on the climate.

The process involves removing carbon dioxide emissions and storing them deep underground, preventing them from being released into the atmosphere. As a greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide contributes towards climate change, so removing carbon dioxide from industrial emissions is vital to ensuring the future of carbon-intensive industry.
