C-Capture launches Europe’s first carbon capture trial in flat glass industry


UK-based carbon dioxide (CO2) removal company C-Capture has announced the start of Europe’s first carbon capture trial on a mainstream flat glass manufacturing plant in St. Helens, UK.

XLR8 CCS will showcase the ability of C-Capture’s carbon capture technology to remove CO2 from the flue gas emissions of three carbon-intensive industries.
