What is Humber Zero
A large scale decarbonisation project backed by world scale partners to remove up to 8 million tonnes per annum of CO2 from the Immingham industrial site by the mid 2020s.
Humber Zero is a project to reduce carbon emissions and create a low carbon future for the Humber’s industry.
Humber Zero incorporates a cluster of energy-intensive industries that lie 1km from the coastline on the south bank of the River Humber. Close to offshore gas storage fields and sitting along a key pipeline route identified by National Grid to connect and decarbonise other key industry in the southern Humber, it is an ideal gateway project for large-scale decarbonisation in the wider region. The UK has committed to reducing carbon emissions to net zero by 2050. This can only be achieved by decarbonising existing industry effectively. Energy intensive industries account for more than 20% of the Humber’s economy and 1 in 10 jobs. Humber Zero is a project with immediate impact for reduced emissions, whilst preserving jobs in these critical industries and maintaining the Humber’s role as an industrial hub.
Humber Zero is led by three large-scale investment partners with internal operating experience.
