Can carbon capture help us fight climate change? Our latest exhibition explores the technologies being developed to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
Right now, scientists are racing to develop different technologies to remove and store excess carbon dioxide—the most significant cause of climate change.
Our Future Planet will showcase the cutting-edge technology and nature-based solutions being developed to trap carbon dioxide—from conserving ancient woodlands, to installing processes that prevent carbon dioxide leaving power stations and factories.
Find out what could be done with the excess carbon dioxide in our atmosphere and what challenges are involved. What can we do with the carbon dioxide after it has been captured? And why can’t we just plant more trees?
