Humber Zero is a world-scale project to reduce the carbon emissions of critical industry in the Immingham industrial area using carbon capture. The first phase of the project is a consortium between Phillips 66 Limited and VPI Immingham LLP and aims to remove up to 3.8 million tonnes of CO₂ from the Immingham industrial area every year by around 2027.
The carbon emissions from some processes at the VPI Immingham Combined Heat and Power Plant and Phillips 66 Limited Humber Refinery will be captured and compressed. The CO₂ will then be transported off site via pipeline (independent projects) for storage deep under the bed of the North Sea.
Up to 8 MT CO₂ p.a. by 2030
