enfinium, a waste-to-energy firm, has recently entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Eni UK, the UK subsidiary of global energy company Eni. The agreement aims to tackle carbon emissions at enfinium’s Parc Adfer facility, located in Deeside.

This partnership could potentially divert thousands of tonnes of carbon dioxide to empty gas fields under Liverpool Bay. The focus of the collaboration is to support the development of carbon capture and storage (CCS) at the Parc Adfer facility, which is one of the two operating energy from waste sites in Wales.

Run by enfinium, the facility channels away 200,000 tonnes of non-recyclable waste from landfills every year, turning it into electricity, which is then utilized to power more than 45,000 homes and businesses across the United Kingdom.

By leveraging its experience and expertise in the oil and gas industry, Eni is well-equipped to develop and manage the necessary infrastructure for storing and transporting the collected CO2, a key step in achieving a low-carbon future.

Their valuable know-how comes from designing and operating the CO2 transport and storage infrastructure for the HyNet North West cluster, which is one of the priority projects selected by the UK Government to fulfill its commitment to implement Carbon Capture and Utilization (CCU) in two industrial clusters by the mid-2020s.

This initiative is part of the Track-1 CCS Cluster Sequencing Process. Eni’s involvement in this MOU emphasizes its dedication to supporting the UK Government’s goals of reducing carbon emissions and advancing sustainable energy solutions.

The main objective of this project is to accelerate North Wales’ transition towards clean environmental practices and industrial growth opportunities, leading to significant decarbonization in the region. The new plant will be built with the intention of removing over 100,000 tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere and is planned to be operational by 2030.
