United Kingdom will invest 6 million Euros on hydrogen and Saf
New Beccs program to improve raw material treatment
The British Government announced the launch of a new Beccs (Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage) program yesterday, for the production of green hydrogen from the treatment of waste and biomass. The initial investment is 6 million Euros. The technological development envisaged in the gasification process will also enable the conversion of biomass into Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF).
The Beccs process has "incredible" potential and "this government funding will help support the development of this new technology in the UK, increasing jobs and green investment while reducing carbon emissions", said UK Minister of State for Business, Energy and Clean Growth, Greg Hands.
The government program is divided into two phases: in the first, companies, research institutes and universities will be able to apply for funding; after a feasibility study, selected projects will move to the second step for the development of Beecs technology for the production mainly of hydrogen.
The objective of the program is the capture and storage of carbon dioxide emissions released during the treatment process of waste and biomass, which will be permanently removed from the atmosphere. This will be done through the efficiency of the feedstock pre-treatment process.
