Surrey council planners have recommended refusal of plans by IGas for hydrogen production in the green belt.

Carbon capture must be safe and effective in reducing CO2 emissions, members of the public have told the government.
IGas has revealed it wants to produce hydrogen from methane at its Bletchingley site in Surrey.
In this guest post, Ann Stewart, of Weald Action Group, argues that IGas plans to produce hydrogen from fossil fuels in Surrey appear to be an attempt to greenwash continued extraction of unabated methane. She says the schemes, if approved, would lock the county into decades of emissions […]
Plans for what could be one of the UK’s first power stations equipped with carbon capture technology were announced today.
In this guest post, Chris Hesketh makes the case for a post-Covid-19 recovery without fracking or unconventional gas extraction.
Professor Kevin Anderson, deputy director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, gave evidence to the inquiry today against Cuadrilla’s plans for fracking at Preston New Road and Roseacre Wood. Here are the key points from his evidence:
