New Industrial Decarbonisation Network launches for the Humber


A NEW decarbonisation network has been launched by a partnership that seeks to support energy, engineering and renewable industries in Yorkshire and Humber.

CATCH held their first-ever Industrial Decarbonisation Network at PX Saltend Chemicals Park on the 29 January.

The network was attended by 30 members all keen to learn more about how to set Science-Based Targets and how these compare to Net Zero Targets.

David Talbot, CEO of CATCH, commented on the event: “It was a great pleasure today to Chair the first CATCH Industrial Decarbonisation Network meeting!

“A packed room of delegates from industry (energy producing and energy intensive), the Public Sector and academia meant that we had the right people present to support the region’s ambitious plans for the Humber to become net-zero carbon by 2040, as articulated in the LEP’s Clean Growth White Paper.

“I would like to thank Nick Fedson, and Damir Ahmovic from Alfa Energy, Emma Toulson from Orsted and our own Katie Hedges for providing a fascinating insight into science-based targets, net zero (and what it really means), and what the region is doing in terms of industrial decarbonisation.

“This network has been set up to help CATCH members on their journey to decarbonisation – whether they are already involved in a carbon capture project or looking at hydrogen switching or just starting your decarbonisation journey and want to share ideas, this network will help you access information and updates from the wider Humber Industrial cluster.”

Created in 1999 to support the development of the £6 billion Humber chemical and chemistry-using sectors, CATCH now boasts members and partners from across the process engineering, energy, engineering and renewable sectors.
