UK's biggest carbon capture project is step-change on emissions

Tata-owned Cheshire plant to turn 40,000 tonnes of CO2 a year into useful products

The UK’s biggest carbon capture project will soon block thousands of tonnes of factory emissions from contributing to the climate crisis, by using them to help make the chemicals found in antacid, eye drops and Pot Noodle.

Within two years a chemical plant in Cheshire could keep 40,000 tonnes of carbon from the air every year, or the equivalent of removing 22,000 cars from the UK’s roads.
