INEOS progresses forwards in delivering its plan for a world-scale low-carbon hydrogen plant at Grangemouth, Scotland as it awards a key contract for the design of the plant to Atkins.

The new hydrogen plant is expected to be operational by 2030 and aims to reduce emissions from the site by 1 million tonnes a year, as the site targets net zero by 2045.

Fundamental to INEOS’ Hydrogen project will be access to the Scottish Cluster carbon capture and storage (CCS) infrastructure. The carbon from the hydrogen plant will be sent directly offshore. There, it will be stored in rock formations in the depths of the North Sea.

Net Zero & Energy Secretary Michael Matheson says: ‘Scotland has the resources, the people, and the ambition to become a world leader in hydrogen production – for both domestic use and for export to Europe. It will play an increasingly important role in supporting our just transition to a net zero economy and deliver good, green jobs for our highly skilled workforces.’
