Ricardo’s carbon capture demonstrator plant will use sustainably-sourced forestry waste to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, provide local communities with renewable heat and electricity, and deliver national energy security.
As part of its mission to support the decarbonisation of the global energy sector, Ricardo, a global, strategic environmental and engineering consulting company, has received 3million GBP from the UK Government to design, install and operate a combined heat and power demonstrator plant with a carbon negative footprint which will showcase climate repairing technology. The plant will demonstrate the effectiveness of community scale greenhouse gas removal and clean energy using sustainably-sourced forestry waste. The funding is awarded through the Net Zero Innovation Portfolio (NZIP) under the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
