Britain’s biggest carbon-emitters are in talks with the Government over a funding plan for projects that could start stripping greenhouse gases from power plants and factories by the mid-2020s. Tata Steel will join energy giants BP, Royal Dutch Shell, National Grid, Drax Group and Cadent Gas to back fresh plans to develop a technology that can trap and storage carbon emissions to help tackle climate change. Ministers have promised to pour £170m into developing carbon capture, usage and storage (CCUS) technology that could help create the world’s first net-zero carbon industrial cluster in the UK by 2040. The alliance is expected to offer an “industry voice” to government plans, set to take shape this year, after the £1bn failure of its first attempt to build a CCUS industry earlier this decade.
