The European parliament's Strasbourg plenary session has voted to support carbon capture and storage (CCS) with a large majority.

This report focuses on the integration of the existing coal-fired 1 070 MW Unit 3 of Maasvlakte Power Plant (MPP3) with the proposed new 250 MW scale carbon capture plant of the Rotterdam Opslag en Afvang Demonstratieproject (ROAD).

The City Deal will see the Tees Valley become a global pioneer in CCS, with a business model that will not only see investment in the area but also reduce industrial carbon emissions.

The report on the experience of CCS demonstration projects in the EU with the transposition of the CCS Directive is now available for download

The Energy and Climate Change Secretary Edward Davey opened the Drax coal-to-biomass conversion plant, and announced that the Government was awarding funding to further the White Rose CCS project.
