Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Carbon Capture and Storage: Water Treatment (24 Mai 2024)

Rebecca Pow: In March 2023, Planetary Technologies and South West Water asked the Environment Agency to authorise their carbon sequestration trial in St Ives Bay. Varying South West Water’s EPR (Environmental Permitting Regulations) permit would not have been appropriate for a short term trial (less than one month) so the approach would be to issue a Local Enforcement Position.
