Listen on

Episode notes

Everyone’s talking about decarbonising through industrial hubs, but who is doing it best? The idea is simple. Gather together high emitters to capture carbon – and economies of scale. These plans can cover CCS, hydrogen and even more pioneering technologies. 

The UK has taken a lead in these plans, picking out two hubs to take the first step, with investment decisions coming soon. The US administration has been keen to capture lost ground and is throwing significant quantities of cash into its pursuit. 

In this first episode of the Bigger Faster Better podcast series, in paid partnership with Womble Bond Dickinson, their Matt Lewy joins Dave Edwards of Air Liquide to talk about how the UK and US measure up – and how to get to where we want to go on the Net Zero path faster.
