“Hydrogen is essential for decarbonisation.” That is the strongly held, simply expressed belief of Dan Sadler, UK Low Carbon Strategy Director at Equinor.
”And there is no place better in the world for low carbon hydrogen than the Humber cluster in the UK. We have the perfect combination of natural gas supplies, renewable power generation, hydrogen production, hydrogen demand and the potential for underground hydrogen storage in salt caverns and offshore CCS.”
There are several heavy-industry clusters in the UK. Teesside, in the north east, was where the UK chemicals industry expanded in the 1950s and, until recently, was a large iron and steel-making location. Merseyside, in the north west, is home to the Stanlow refinery and chemicals parks around Runcorn.
