The firms behind a study to determine if a carbon capture and storage facility could be build in the north-east have confirmed work is halfway finished. A fresh bid to develop the pioneering clean energy technology was launched last year when First Minister Nicola Sturgeon unveiled funding for a £1.8million study into creating the site at St Fergus. Acorn, the group behind the project, said the scheme could be “even greater” than similar plans to build a carbon capture and storage (CCS) site at Peterhead Power Station, which were abandoned in 2015. And now the consortium has announced the feasibility study is “50% complete”.
