Carbon capture is essential for the UK to play its part and lead the world in avoiding the climate crisis
BUT instead of just capturing and storing it, carbon dioxide (CO2) can be useful. Here are 5 things that can be made from captured carbon:
1. Bubbles in pints
CO2 can be used to add the fizz to beer and soft drinks
2. Smarter sneakers
75% of the materials used to make The Shoe Without A Footprint are from captured emissions
3. Better plastics
CO2 can be turned into oil-free alternatives to plastic including polyols used to make polyurethanes in
cars sofas fridges buildings and clothing
4. Cleaner concrete
Concrete is emissions-intensive to make Capturing CO2 from the process and reusing it in production
locks in emissions rather than releasing them
5. Fish Food
A UK startup is using captured carbon to create protein-based feed for aquiculture and agriculture
