Energy Minister says plans afoot to revive “corpse” of Peterhead CCS project

26/01/2016

Attempts are being made to revive the “corpse” of the carbon capture and storage (CCS) project which had been destined for Peterhead, Scotland’s energy minister said yesterday. But Fergus Ewing said none of the other options being mulled would be easy to put into practice. Plans to build the CCS plant were derailed in November following the UK Government’s decision to cut £1billion worth of funding for the technology.
