UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) have announced funding projects for the first phases of the Deployment and Roadmap programme for decarbonisation strategies, run on behalf of the UK government. The projects awarded funding are focused on helping the UK achieve net zero emissions by 2050 as part of the Industrial Decarbonisation Challenge, a key component of the government’s Clean Growth Strategy.

Through this the government is committed to deploying technologies like carbon capture and hydrogen networks in industrial clusters, supporting the Industrial Clusters Mission to establish the world’s first net zero industrial cluster by 2040.

The first phases of the two competitions are as follows:  

Deployment – In the first phase of this programme, UK businesses applied for a share of £1 million to develop plans for decarbonising an industrial cluster.
Roadmaps – Six businesses have been awarded shares of £1 million to prepare plans for their journey to achieving low carbon and net zero industrial clusters.

Bryony Livesey, Challenge Director, Industrial Decarbonisation, said: 'As the UK goes through trying times we nonetheless must plan for the future. We can announce today the funded projects of the first phases of the Industrial Decarbonisation Challenge. These projects are the first stride towards the government’s plans to develop cost-effective decarbonisation in Industrial hubs that tackle the emissions challenge that UK industry faces. We look forward to the development of these plans and their contribution to meeting the 2050 net-zero target.'
