UK moves to demonstrate carbon capture

The UK government has committed to demonstrating large-scale capture and storage of carbon emissions from fossil fuel power generation by 2015. A significant chunk of a new UK£25m (€37.5m) carbon abatement funding plan announced on Tuesday will go, for the first time, to sequestration projects. Subject to EU state aid approval, the programme will run over three to four years. It replaces a previous cleaner coal programme under which the government invested about UK£17m over the last six years. The government promised a further UK£15m for hydrogen and fuel cell demonstration projects. See press release.
