The World’s First Carbon Storage Experiment Takes Place in Argyll

Scotland will trial the world’s first ever carbon capture experiment under the seabed in Argyllshire next week. Scientists are aiming to try and pump carbon dioxide into the sediment under Ardmucknish Bay. Scientists are hoping this could help to slow down climate change by reducing the amount of carbon dioxide that is released into the environment. Scientists will aim to store the carbon dioxide in sub-sea reservoirs. The experiment could have global ramifications and help to reduce the implications of climate change.Scotland already leads the way in wind power and could also soon lead the world in carbon storage.
