LONDON, United Kingdom

enfinium, part of the First Sentier Investors infrastructure portfolio, has announced that it has joined the Carbon Capture and Storage Association (CCSA), signalling the company’s ongoing commitment to supporting the U.K. in achieving its 2050 net zero target.

The CCSA was established to ensure that carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) is recognised as an essential solution to deliver net zero emissions across the economy. It is working to develop long-term commercial models that will establish CCUS to deliver clean local growth and help industry transition to a low-carbon economy.

Mike Maudsley, Chief Executive Officer, said “enfinium are actively exploring carbon capture technology, processes, and business models to deliver further emission reductions, alongside the prospect of achieving net negative emissions from the process. The CCSA plays an important role engaging with Government to ensure that the U.K. has policies in place to enable waste-to-energy facilities deliver net zero.”

Ruth Herbert, Chief Executive of CCSA, said “We are delighted to welcome enfinium to the CCSA. There has been significant interest and membership growth from the waste-to-energy sector in recent years due to the role CCUS can play in the sector’s roadmap to net zero”.

CCSA membership draws from organisations across the CCUS value chain from capture, transport and storage developers, to power and industrial users, plus engineering, legal, insurance, finance, academia and other supporting sectors.
