The AMRC and Nuclear AMRC are supporting a major new project to decarbonise the industrial cluster around the Humber and help UK manufacturers win work in emerging low-carbon sectors including hydrogen fuels and carbon capture.
Funded by UKRI’s Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund, the Zero Carbon Humber (ZCH) Partnership, will accelerate decarbonisation in the UK’s most carbon-intensive industrial region, supporting clean growth and future-proofing vital industries, whilst protecting and creating jobs.
The AMRC and Nuclear AMRC will work together to apply their expertise in developing the UK supply chain for the low-carbon energy sector, building on the proven Fit For Nuclear model to meet the challenges of industrial decarbonisation.
The ZCH proposals alone could reduce the UK’s annual emissions by 15%, and safeguard 55,000 existing jobs in the region.
This will help to build resilience in the local economy and retain the vibrancy that makes the Humber a great industrial powerhouse.
