star this property answer text <p>On 27 June a new, legally binding, target to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 came into force. This will require ambitious action across the economy building on our Clean Growth Strategy, and carbon capture usage and storage (CCUS) is likely to play a vital role</p><p> </p><p>Our CCUS Action Plan sets out that we will move to deploying CCUS in the 2020s, working in partnership with industry to achieve this. To support this, on 27 June we announced that nine companies have secured £26 million of government funding, in addition to industry backing, to advance the rollout of carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) in the UK - a crucial step towards the UK’s net zero emissions and the end of the UK’s contribution to global warming. It is the next milestone for the Government’s ambition for the UK to be a world-leader in the field as laid out in the Clean Growth Strategy and the CCUS Action Plan</p><p> </p><p>One company, Tata Chemicals is being awarded £4.2m toward the construction of a facility to capture and utilise 40,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide a year – the equivalent of 22,000 cars. When fully operational in 2021 it will be the largest carbon capture plant in the UK, removing 100 times more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere than the country’s current largest facility.</p><p> </p><p>We will also shortly be consulting on CCUS business models and the re-use of existing infrastructure assets to support CCUS projects as an important first step to supporting deployment of CCUS in the UK.</p>

Returning Officers will have six months from the day of the poll to submit their expense claims, and so the final cost will not be known until these have been received, scrutinised and settled. The actual cost of delivering candidates’ mailings will also not be known until all invoices from the universal service provider (Royal Mail) have been received and settled.</p> more like this
