A company in the UK, Tata Chemicals Europe, recently opened a carbon capture plant. The plant captures around 40,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide a year and can now use it to manufacture baking soda.
Baking soda (or sodium bicarbonate) has many uses, like in hemodialysis to treat people with kidney disease. It is also used in glass, food, animal feed, detergents, pharmaceuticals and in water purification.
Capturing 40,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide is the equivalent of getting 20,000 cars off the road.
