Residents across the region can find out more about National Grid’s Yorkshire and Humber carbon capture, transportation and storage (CCS) project at public exhibitions being held in the area.

The project involves capturing carbon dioxide produced by major power stations in the region – including the proposed Don Valley CCS Project at Stainforth and White Rose CCS Project at Drax – and transporting it via a buried pipeline to a point south of Bridlington and then out to the North Sea. It will then be permanently stored within natural porous rock formations beneath the seabed.

An exhibition will be held at Holme-on-Spalding Moor Village Hall on Thursday 26 September from 3pm to 7pm. From 11am to 3pm on Saturday 28 September, there will be an exhibition at Market Weighton Community Centre.

See next week’s Pocklington Post (26 September) for the full story.
