EGPP and a CCS scheme for Rio Tinto Alcan's existing power station at Lynemouth, which could potentially use the same network, were two of four North-east CCS schemes handed their share of pounds 1.3m from the Tees Valley Industrial Programme (TVIP).
Peter Whitton, chief executive of EGPP lead company Progressive Energy, said the grant will help it prepare its bid for a Government competition to fund four UK CCS demonstrator plants.
