The UK will convert 40,000 tonnes of carbon into sodium bicarbonate

The UK will convert 40,000 tonnes of carbon into sodium bicarbonate

The UK’s largest carbon capture project will convert 40,000 tonnes of waste carbon dioxide into an effective chemical called sodium bicarbonate, the equivalent of removing 20,000 cars from the roads, and promising to help the country reach its net-zero target by 2050.

According to the British newspaper “Daily Mail”, sodium bicarbonate is a dietary and medical standard, so it can be used as baking soda, dialysis machines and pills.

Tata Chemicals Europe (DCE) today opened a new plant in Northwich, Cheshire, with the goal of reducing carbon emissions by more than 10%.

Carbon dioxide is also extracted from the layers of a power plant that runs on methane fuel, before being refined, cooled, and liquefied.

The plant cost £ 20m, including a government subsidy of £ 4m, and the process of converting the refined carbon dioxide used by TCE into sodium bicarbonate was patented in the UK.

TCE has named its sodium bicarbonate “Ecokarb” and it is exported to more than 60 countries around the world, and the bulk of the exported sodium bicarbonate is used in dialysis to treat patients with kidney disease.

Other possible uses include water purification, food and animal feed, and pH balance of prescription pills.
