On January 12, the UK government announced a new project called Hydrogen BECCS Innovation Program, which will spend £5 million over the next three years, will help businesses find new ways to make hydrogen from waste and biomas.
Permanent removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere is possible with the use of bioenergy with carbon capture and storage (BECCS) technology.
Additionally, the initiative will focus on the use of carbon capture technology to absorb and store carbon dioxide generated during the manufacturing process.
With the goal of contributing to the UK’s “green industrial revolution,” the programme will promote hydrogen as an alternative sustainable fuel for sectors like transportation and heavy industry.
“This government funding will help support the development of this new technology in the UK, boosting green jobs and investment while slashing carbon emissions.” said Energy and Climate Change Minister, Greg Hands.
Developing new biohydrogen technologies that can be used to capture carbon, like dark fermentation and anaerobic digestions, will also be a goal of the project.
