A contract has been awarded to review a range of ways to transport and store captured Carbon Dioxide.

BEIS has assigned the task to Pale Blue Dot Energy (PBD), which will review a variety of business models that have either been used successfully overseas or proposed for the UK.

These business models could come from the carbon capture and storage (CCS) industry or from a number of other different sectors.

The work builds on PBD’s 10-year CCS track record, which includes the delivery of a major project for the former DECC to identify cost effective CCS storage sites off UK coast.

The UK Government’s second bid to support carbon capture and storage (CCS) has recently fallen through.
