LONDON, LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, February 26, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Equinor's H2H Saltend project achieves a significant milestone with the approval of planning permission for a cutting-edge 600-megawatt low carbon hydrogen production plant featuring carbon capture technology. This landmark development stands as one of the first of its magnitude to secure planning consent in the UK. By positioning the Humber region as a key international hub for low carbon hydrogen, Equinor is poised to make substantial strides in reducing carbon emissions while spearheading innovation in sustainable energy solutions.

Furthermore, as a key component of Equinor's 'Hydrogen to Humber' vision, the project is set to deliver 1.8 gigawatts of low carbon hydrogen production capacity within the region. This substantial commitment represents nearly 20% of the UK's ambitious national target for 2030.

Minister for Energy Efficiency and Green Finance Lord Callanan said: “I am pleased that H2H Saltend has been granted planning permission, a vital step forward in decarbonising the Humber while delivering jobs and growth to the region… CCUS clusters will be the starting point for a new industry in the UK, which is why we’ve committed up to £20 billion in early support and expect to bring forward 4GW of low carbon hydrogen production by 2030.”
