The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) is looking to support the deployment of advanced carbon, capture, usage and storage (CCUS) technologies within the UK. This is in line with the Prime Minister’s Ten point plan for a green industrial revolution, announced in November 2020.
This programme will provide grant funding to innovation projects that significantly reduce the cost of capturing, using and sequestering CO2, or that help UK industry to understand the opportunity for deploying next generation carbon capture technology on industrial, waste or power sites.
A total of £19.5 million in grant funding will be available over two calls, the first in 2021 and the second in 2022. Projects will be split into two lots:
- Lot 1 Mid Stage CCUS innovation for projects developing and piloting mid-stage (TRL 3-5) CCUS innovation. For Lot 1 BEIS will consider grant applications of up to £1 million.
- Lot 2 Late Stage CCUS innovation for projects developing late-stage (TRL 6-8) CCUS technology, particularly demonstrating at intermediate (~100 tonnes CO2 per day) scale or greater at site. For Lot 2 BEIS will consider grant applications of up to £5 million.
Industry or academic-led projects can apply for CCUS Innovation 2.0 funding. Applications are open to all sizes of organisation, including SMEs, other private sector organisations, universities and public sector research organisations and collaborative proposals.
