A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed between Enfinium and Eni UK will see the pair investigating CCS implementation at Enfinium’s Parc Adfer facility in North Wales. By capturing CO2 emissions from its existing energy from waste infrastructure, Enfinium seeks to significantly reduce atmospheric emissions.
“We are pleased to announce our partnership with Eni UK, marking a significant step on our journey to decarbonize our operations and the wider North Wales region,” said Mike Maudsley, CEO of Enfinium. “Energy from waste is the only proven long-term solution for sustainably managing unrecyclable waste, which is why we continue to look for innovations to reduce and capture emissions. If connected to the HyNet Northwest cluster, Parc Adfer would take emissions out of the atmosphere while also generating carbon negative electricity to support Wales’s renewable power targets.”
Eni UK is responsible for developing and operating the CO2 transport and storage infrastructure for the HyNet Northwest cluster. The HyNet Northwest cluster is one of the two priority projects chosen by the UK Government to deploy CCU in two industrial clusters by approximately 2025.
Operated on behalf of five councils in North Wales, Enfinium’s Parc Adfer site is responsible for diverting 200,000 tons of unrecyclable waste from landfill each year. The waste is then used to generate energy for over 45,000 homes and businesses in the UK.
Through the use of carbon capture technology at the facility, Enfinium estimates a net removal of more than 100,000 tons of CO2 from the atmosphere each year.
