A Coal Plant in India Is Turning CO2 Into Baking Soda
In India, one company, CarbonClean, has developed a new way to remove carbon dioxide from the environment, by turning it into baking soda.
CarbonClean is using their new technology at a coal-fired power plant in the city of Tuticorin. The company claims that they can trap more than 66,000 tons of carbon per year at the plant.
CarbonClean is using their captured carbon to make baking soda, which has a number of uses in everything from detergents and baking to glass manufacture and medicine. While other groups have been able to convert CO2 into useful products in the lab, this is the first example in an industrial setting without heavy subsidies.
