Trials to Suck Carbon Dioxide from the Air to Start Across the UK

Reading Time: < 1 minute


  • In an effort to reduce the impacts from climate change, trials have begun across the UK to suck carbon dioxide from the air using trees, peat, rock chips and charcoal.
  • Researchers are finding ways to do this over 100 hectares (247 acres) of land which makes it one of the biggest trials in the world.
  • Additional trials include finding the best large-scale way to use trees to capture carbon and the potential to remove carbon from willow and miscanthus grass. The crops would be burned for energy with the CO2 emissions captured and stored underground.
