bp plans blue hydrogen production establishment: bp revealed plans today to create what is claimed to be the UK’s largest blue hydrogen production facility.
Situated in Teesside, the large-scale plan, which may begin running sooner than 2027, is expected to have a 1GW production volume by 2030, about 20% of the UK’s hydrogen goal.
bp calculates the ‘H2Teesside’ plant could capture & store as much as 2 million tonnes of CO2 each year, comparable to capturing the emissions from the heating of 1 million households.
The government pledged to building the nation’s first hydrogen transport hub in Tees Valley just a few days ago.
Anne-Marie Trevelyan, Energy Minister stated: “Driving the growth of low carbon hydrogen is a key part of the Prime Minister’s ten point plan and our Energy White Paper and can play an important part in helping us end our contribution to climate change by 2050.
“Clean hydrogen has huge potential to help us fully decarbonise across the UK and it is great to see bp exploring its full potential on Teesside.”
bp’s Executive Vice President of Gas and Low Carbon energy, Dev Sanyal commented: “Clean hydrogen is an essential complement to electrification on the path to net zero.
“Blue hydrogen, integrated with carbon capture and storage, can provide the scale and reliability needed by industrial processes.”
