Energy storage and clean fuel company ITM Power is launching a pioneering research programme to see if it can produce synthetic natural gas economically using hydrogen and the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide.

Sheffield-based ITM has won a £100,000 grant from the Department of Energy and Climate Change’s Carbon Capture and Storage Innovation competition.

It plans to use the cash to investigate the technological, financial and operational feasibility of combining hydrogen and CO2 in a process known as “methanation.”
