Work begins on Carbon Capture and Storage at Edmonton EcoPark

15 Aug 2023

Three specialist teams have been appointed by North London Waste Authority (NLWA) to develop the strategic plans for installing Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) at new Energy Recovery Facility at Edmonton EcoPark. 

Ramboll in collaboration with Turner & Townsend will advise on engineering and project management; WSP will advise on the planning and development of the environmental statement; and Amberside will advise on financial and commercial modelling and business case development. 

Alongside this strategic push, NLWA has joined the Carbon Capture and Storage Association which is the lead UK and European trade association aiming to accelerate the commercial deployment of CCS. NLWA is a partner too in the Bacton Thames Net Zero (BTNZ) Cooperation Agreement, which is exploring the feasibility of transporting and storing carbon dioxide from Southeast England and the Thames Estuary in the Hewett depleted gas field in the North Sea.  

It is hoped that CCS will be installed at the EcoPark in the early-to-mid 2030s on the site of the current energy-from-waste facility once it has been decommissioned and dismantled.  

NLWA has set aside £2.5 million for the first stage of strategic development. Overall, the three contracts will run for seven years and will have a value of up to £10 million.
