Liberal Democrats Scottish Secretary Michael Moore has welcomed the news two Scottish sites has been shortlisted as part of the UK Government's £1bn carbon capture and storage competition.

Commenting, Mr Moore said:

"It is great news that two of the four shortlisted projects are in Scotland, which has the potential to lead the way in this emerging technology.

"The UK Government is committed to reducing our harmful emissions and we are supporting the development of carbon capture and storage as we look to new ways to protect the environment in future.

"This level of funding is only possible because of the scale of the UK and Scotland stands to benefit as a result if either of the projects are successful.

"The £1bn competition is an exciting opportunity for the projects at Grangemouth and Peterhead to make the case for CCS."
