Humber Industrial Cluster Plan | Net-Zero Emissions Pathways in the Humber

The Humber is the largest industrial area within the UK, with over 14 MtCO2 emitted annually and employing thousands of people in foundation heavy industries.

• Several industrial decarbonisation projects, exploring carbon capture and storage (CCS) and hydrogen production are emerging in the region, driven by the private sector. •

In 2019 UKRI launched the 2-phase decarbonisation of industrial clusters roadmaps competition. The former Humber Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), which is now Hull and East Yorkshire (HEY) LEP, and CATCH were initially funded to carry out a Phase 1 feasibility study, and then successfully received Phase 2 funding to develop their decarbonisation roadmap alongside five other competition winners, each taking a share of £8 million in funding from UKRI.

• The phase 2 project to deliver the clusters decarbonisation roadmap is known as the Humber Industrial Cluster Plan (HICP) and is being led by HEY LEP and CATCH, with 8 industrial partners. •

The project aims to develop a regional strategy on how industrial emissions will change over time and provide the region's projects and industry with a well-defined, optimal route to achieving true net-zero in 2040.
