A planning application for the onshore elements of a carbon capture and storage plant at Peterhead power station has been approved by Aberdeenshire Council.
Shell and energy firm SSE are in the running for UK government funding to develop a commercial scheme.
Shell's project leader Bill Spence said it was "encouraging" news.
It is thought about 600 jobs would be created at the height of the construction phase.
