Join us as we discuss Peak Cluster, a global first that will ensure the sustainable, net zero future for one of our most important industries. The area’s cement and lime producers have been reducing CO 2 emissions from their operations for many years and Peak Cluster will help us to continue on this journey to a net zero future.

Peak Cluster is an innovative collaboration driven by British industry to revolutionise production and decarbonise a nationally essential industry. We’ll achieve this by capturing, transporting and storing carbon emissions from cement and lime manufacturing in and around the Peak District. The Peak Cluster consists of five cement and lime plants in the Peak District, owned by Tarmac, Breedon, Lhoist and Aggregate Industries in Staffordshire together with Lostock Sustainable Energy Plant in Cheshire. By decarbonising the vital industries producing society's essential materials, we will revolutionise the sector and enable the removal of over three million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions from the Peak District each year, from 2030. This represents a quarter of all of Derbyshire's and Staffordshire’s CO 2 emissions. Our ambition will deliver a world-leading project focused on the future. We want to kickstart a new low carbon products sector that will generate quality career opportunities for local young people. We will create cutting-edge knowledge and skills for future generations that the UK can proudly export.
