Net Hero Podcast – Stick it in the ground!

Net Hero Podcast  – Stick it in the ground!

Dirt. Earth. Soil. Salvation!

In this week's podcast I ask whether the answer to our emissions problems is literally under our feet!

Jim Mann thinks so. He's the boss of environmental carbon capture company UNDO, which is using the science of geology to use the soil to capture excess carbon. They are spreading a type of pulversied rock called Basalt, onto farmland it then reacts with the CO2 in the air to absorb the carbon and at the same time helps improve the health of the soil.

With some grant money and pilot projects already underway, could this be a natural and low cost solution to carbon capture? Listen in and find out more.
