Plans to transport captured carbon dioxide for safe storage in the North Sea have been put out to consultation.
The Humber Low Carbon Pipelines (HLCP) aims to clean up some of the region's biggest industrial emitters.
A second pipeline would transport hydrogen for use as a more environmentally friendly alternative to fossil fuels, National Grid said.
The pipelines would run from Drax in North Yorkshire to Easington on the East Yorkshire coast.
According to National Grid, The Humber region is responsible for producing 12.4 million tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions per year.
This means it can play a crucial part in helping the UK to transition to a low-carbon economy and reach its ambitions around net zero by 2050, it said. Stay informed: CCS and Hydrogen
