Projects in West Midlands, Tees Valley, North West, Humber, Scotland and South Wales won GBP 8 million share in government backing to develop ways to cut carbon emissions from major industrial areas.

The new funding is the latest phase of the government’s GBP 170 million Industrial Decarbonisation Challenge, which has the potential to create 10 000 green jobs. The UK aims to create 4 low-carbon industrial hubs by 2030 and at least one net zero emission cluster by 2040.
