The UK Governments CCUS Application For Energy From Waste Projects

Insight Hero Image

    The latest UK Government Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) update:

    • demonstrates clear support under the ICC model for EfW projects;
    • describes the eligibility criteria for EfW and similar facilities; and
    • sets out the submission structure and timetable for eligible EfW projects.

    This update is a significant step towards incorporating carbon capture and storage ("CCS") technology into energy from waste facilities, either by:

    • retro-fitting CCS technology to existing energy from waste facilities; or
    • incorporating CCS technology into new EfW facilities which are currently being developed or are yet to be developed.
