Scotland to open a plant to remove carbon from the air

In Scotland, the concept of a carbon capture plant was presented. It can slow the rise in temperature and mitigate global warming.

In the north-east of Scotland, a large enterprise will appear that can extract a significant amount of carbon dioxide from the air. According to scientists, it can process up to a million tons of carbon – the same as about 40 million trees absorb.

The produced gas can be stored for a long time deep under the seabed off the coast of Scotland. But critics argue that technology is not a “magic pill” for fighting climate change.

This direct air capture (DAC) plan is a joint venture between UK-based Storegga and Canadian Carbon Engineering. It is at a very early stage of development – they want to commission the plant in 2026.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says that in order to keep the planet safe, by the end of this century, the rise in global temperatures must be contained and made so that it does not exceed 1.5 degrees.

However, in 2020, the temperature was already 1.2 degrees above historical levels. To contain the rise in temperature, the researchers propose limiting the emissions of heating gases that contribute to their rise.
