Scottish rocks could store emissions

New report found sandstone rocks under the North Sea could hold up to a century's worth of carbon emissions from Scotlands’s power industry and create tens of thousands of new jobs.

The study has estimated that the rock formation, known as Captain sandstone, east of the Moray Firth, could eventually hold up to 100 years' worth of carbon emissions from power stations in Scotland, using carbon-capture and storage (CCS) technologies which might be worth £10bn by 2025.
