The UK’s biggest carbon capture project is opening today, with carbon dioxide being used to make sodium bicarbonate for dialysis machines, pharmaceutical tablets and baking soda.

The CO2 is captured from a gas-fired power plant at the facility and isn’t stored, but purified and turned into liquefied CO2 to make sodium biocarbonate. “Effectively, we are making our own raw material,” says Ashcroft. TCE previously bought most of its CO2 from two of the UK’s biggest fertiliser plants, one of which is closing.
