Cory is one of the UK’s leading recycling and waste management companies. We help to ensure that London and the South East have a safe, clean and sustainable way of managing recyclable and non-recyclable waste.
We’re proud to deliver an important service for our local communities by providing reliable and efficient waste management services and diverting from landfill.
However, we know that we need to reduce our carbon impact and get to net zero.
Our planned CCS project will be able to capture c.1.3 million tonnes of carbon dioxide per year by 2030
Cory's net zero target
CO2 will be safely transported for storage offshore
The UK government's net zero target
CO2 will be safely stored >1km below the seabed
Of local authorities are aiming for net zero by 2040 or earlier
Frequently asked questions
This page provides answers to questions that directly relate to our decarbonisation proposals and are likely to be of interest to stakeholders and the wider local community. They will be regularly reviewed to ensure they are up to date.
How much carbon dioxide will you capture?
Our CCS project has the potential to capture c.1.3 million tonnes of CO2 per year. This equates to more CO2 than is emitted by a town the size of Reading each year.
What is carbon capture and storage (CCS)?
CCS is a process that captures carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from energy generation sources such as power plants, EfW facilities and other industrial emission sources. It is then transported and stored safely so that it will not re-enter the atmosphere.
