Evero Energy Group Limited, previously known as Bioenergy Infrastructure Group, has announced that it will be partnering with the industrial group Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd (MHI) to deliver its InBECCS (Ince Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage) project.

The InBECCS project will be retrofitted on Evero’s Ince Bio Power site, a waste wood to energy facility located in the North-West of England, which is very close to the Hynet industrial cluster.

Greg Williams, Head of External Affairs at Evero, said: “Installing carbon capture on Ince Bio Power will result in a BECCS project with excellent sustainability credentials, and the ability to deliver engineered removals at scale. Its feedstock is locally sourced waste wood that would otherwise be landfilled or exported. It is also well positioned on the Protos energy park in close proximity to HyNet’s prospective CO2 pipeline.”

The project would generate as much as 250,000 tonnes of engineered carbon removals a year, once operational in 2029 and deliver ~5% of the Government’s 2030 Greenhouse Gas Removals target, due to the project’s high biogenic content waste wood feedstock, according to Evero.

BECCS will have an important role to play in helping to achieve the UK’s net-zero targets, as the most scalable technology available today, to remove CO2 from the atmosphere, the company added. The UK Government’s recently published Biomass Strategy identified that BECCS using end of life waste wood – as used in Ince Bio Power – is a highly sustainable form of BECCS.

Simon Hicks, CEO of Evero, said: “The project will play an important role in developing additional skills, knowledge, and export opportunities for carbon capture – enabling the North West to grow the green economy.”

Kenji Terasawa, CEO and Head of Engineering Solutions at MHI, said: “BECCS will be a key instrument to decarbonise our power systems on the way to net zero. We look forward to applying our extensive expertise on CO2capture in Evero’s innovative InBECCS project, helping the UK reach its ambitious decarbonisation targets.”

The project will utilise MHI’s amine solvent technology, known as the Advanced KM CDR process (Kansai Mitsubishi Carbon Dioxide Recovery Process), which the company has been developing in a collaborative partnership with Kansai Electric Power.
