Humber Zero

Humber Zero is a world-scale project to reduce the CO2 emissions of critical industry in the Immingham industrial area using carbon capture. The first phase of the project is a consortium between Phillips 66 Limited and VPI Immingham and aims to remove up to 3.8 MT of CO2 from the Immingham industrial area every year by around 2027.

The CO2 emissions from some processes at the VPI Immingham Combined Heat and Power Plant and Phillips 66 Limited Humber Refinery will be captured and compressed. The CO2 will then be transported off site via pipeline (independent projects) for storage deep under the bed of the North Sea.
