The HyNet project is paving the way for a net zero economy by developing the UK’s first low carbon hydrogen plant. The plant, which will use JM’s Low Carbon Hydrogen (LCH™) technology, will produce 3TWh of low carbon hydrogen – double the UK’s total current production of biomethane – which will be provided to industrial and eventually domestic customers in the North West of England.
The facility will deliver low cost, low carbon hydrogen at scale and high efficiency, and with a very high carbon capture rate – over 95% of the carbon used in the process will be captured and stored. When operational, the facility will produce 80kt of hydrogen per year, and capture 600,000 tonnes of CO2 – the equivalent of taking over 250,000 petrol or diesel powered cars off the road.
World-first low carbon hydrogen projects in the UK win £13m Government backing
