Cory is one of the UK’s leading recycling and waste management companies. The company plans to install carbon capture technology at its existing EfW facility, as well as its planned Riverside 2 EfW facility, with the potential to create the world’s largest single-site waste decarbonisation project.
HyNet is the UK’s leading industrial decarbonisation project. We are unlocking a low carbon future across the north west of the UK – creating new roles, safeguarding existing jobs, growing a skills base and attracting investment into the region. HyNet will reduce the amount of carbon dioxide emitted from across the region by a quarter starting in the mid-2020s. We will do this both by locking away the carbon dioxide emitted by heavy industry and by providing locally-produced low carbon hydrogen to power for industry, transport and to heat for our homes and businesses.
