Continuing the Tees Valley’s rich history of innovation, advanced manufacturing and clean energy, alongside the UK's first zero-carbon industrial cluster.

Including sectors such as hydrogen, carbon capture, utilisation and storage, offshore energy and process engineering, the Tees Valley is one of the UK’s most integrated industrial economies with a supply chain made up of a wide range of firms.

This legacy has nurtured the advanced manufacturing sector and attracted strategically important multi-national companies to the area. This includes some of the most innovative and forward-thinking experts in low carbon technologies, with leading research and technology development organisations, such as the Centre for Process Innovation (CPI), Materials Processing Institute and TWI.

Net Zero Teesside is the UK’s first carbon capture, utilisation and storage facility, capturing up to 10 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions a year. Based at Teesworks and in partnership with local industry and world-class partners, Net Zero Teesside aims to decarbonise the area’s carbon intensive businesses by as early as 2030.

SeAH Wind’s huge offshore manufacturing facility is currently under construction at the South Bank area of the site, utilising the brand new South Bank Quay to transport its monopiles to the North Sea. At the neighbouring Dorman Point site, Circular Fuels has plans to build a ground-breaking low carbon plant. The £150million cutting-edge fuel-from-waste facility will produce 50,000 tonnes of fuel per year from non-recyclable household and industry waste.
