The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy via KTN UK is looking to invest up to £70m in Direct Air Capture and other potential Greenhouse Gas Removal technologies that could be deployed in the UK. This competition is to support the development of technologies that are not yet commercial rather than supporting technologies that are already mature. The competition will be split up into two phases with Phase 1 focusing on an initial design study, followed by Phase 2 which will support a pilot demonstration.
