enfinium, a leading UK energy from waste operator, announced on April 11th an update on a carbon capture and storage project on its Parc Adfer energy from waste facility in Deeside, North Wales. The company is progressing plans to invest around £200 million ($250.5 million) in the project with an expected capacity of up to 235,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) captured every year. 

According to the announcement, installing CCS would enable the plant to capture more CO2 than it produces as over half of the waste processed at the facility is organic.

Back in August 2023, enfinium signed a memorandum of understanding with Eni UK to support the development of the CCS installation at the Parc Adfer facility. enfinium is the operator of the waste to energy plant on behalf of five councils across North Wales. It processes for energy over 200,000 tonnes of unrecyclable waste that would otherwise end up in landfills.

A proposal from the project has been put forward for grant support from the UK Government as part of the expansion of the ‘Track-1’ carbon capture program. The captured carbon would be transported using the pipeline network currently in development as part of the HyNet carbon capture cluster. The UK Government is expected to provide an update on which projects are progressing through the Track-1 HyNet Expansion programme by the summer.

According to Mike Maudsley, CEO of enfinium, installing carbon capture at the Parc Adfer facility would transform it into the “largest generator of carbon negative power” in Wales, which would support the green economy in Deeside and wider North Wales.
