The UK's largest carbon capture plant, which will aim to recycle 40,000 tonnes of waste CO2 each year, has opened.

Tata Chemicals Europe's (TCE) site in Northwich, Cheshire, will be the first in the world to purify and liquefy carbon dioxide as a raw material to make bicarbonate of soda.

The firm was [size=inherit]given a 4.2m government grant[/size] towards the project.

A TCE spokesman said the plant as "a key milestone in the race to meet the [size=inherit]UK's net zero targets" by 2050[/size].

The plant will extract the CO2, which contributes to climate change, and it will be purified to food and pharmaceutical grade and used as a raw material to produce bicarbonate of soda, known as as Ecokark.

Its annual target will be the equivalent of taking more than 20,000 cars off the roads.

The bicarbonate of soda will be exported to more than 60 countries, with the majority used to treat people living with kidney disease and the rest used in water purification and to make glass, detergents, pharmaceuticals, food and animal feed.

The capture is from their own plant emissions.
