Essar is a leading player in the decarbonisation of the UK economy through its delivery of an energy transition hub at Stanlow in the heart of the North West near Liverpool, Chester and Manchester.
Reducing our emissions by 75% by 2030 and achieving net zero by 2040
Stanlow is a strategic refinery producing vital fuels for UK transportation – around 16% of road fuels are produced here. The process of making refined products is carbon intensive, and, like most refineries, Stanlow is therefore a substantial emitter of CO2. We will continue manufacturing these vital, hard-to-abate fuels to customers but are significantly reducing the CO2 emissions associated with them.
And that is what we are doing to become one of the first net zero refinery operations in the world.
We have a clear and realistic roadmap:
There are three ways we will achieve this:
Essar is at the heart of the HyNet North West Cluster – selected by the UK Government as one of two clusters for industrial decarbonisation. The CO2 pipeline and hydrogen pipeline will be centred around Stanlow. EET Hydrogen is developing a 1GW+ of low carbon hydrogen to decarbonise regional manufacturing and power generation sites across the whole of the North West and North Wales.
EET Hydrogen is: • Delivering an initial 1,000 megawatts of low carbon hydrogen capacity – enough to provide the fuel consumed by a city the size of Liverpool • Capturing 1.8 million tonnes of carbon dioxide every year at full capacity – equivalent to taking 750,000 cars off the roads • Investing around £1 billion in the North West of the UK and facilitating the investment of a further £1 billion or more of associated infrastructure • Playing a leading role in kickstarting the UK low carbon, large scale hydrogen market
Enhanced by the proximity to HyNet and by other business synergies, Argent (biodiesel producer) and Fulcrum (developing SAF production project) have selected Stanlow as their investment location as we help to build the industries of the future here in the North West.
Essar is the leading UK-focused downstream energy company and Stanlow Manufacturing Complex is one of the most advanced refineries in Europe, producing a range of fuels and chemicals which currently do not have renewable alternatives such as ethylene, propylene, mono-styrene, benzene and toluene
Our annual production is over 4.4 billion litres of diesel, 3 billion litres of petrol and 2 billion litres of jet fuel. Our process units optimise our output, with over 9 million tonnes of crude oil and feedstock processed each year.
Committed to continuously improving every aspect of our business
Since acquiring Stanlow in 2011, Essar has invested $1 billion in margin improvement and other efficiency initiatives to ensure the refinery remains competitive in a rapidly changing market.
The company is a major supplier in the North West and beyond with customers including most of the major retail brands operated by international oil companies and supermarkets, Manchester Airport, Liverpool John Lennon Airport and leading commercial airlines and the region’s trains and buses.
We have an embedded safety culture, technically challenging work and provide some of the best training available in the industry. As one of the leading players in the oil and chemical industry, we are committed to continuously improving every aspect of our business.
Essar is committed to delivering excellence in environmental, social and governance activity. We are committed to identifying and delivering activity that is in the best interests of society, the company, our colleagues and our communities while meeting the expectations our wider stakeholders.
