Calgary Co-op Uses Carbon Capture Equipment to Produce Carbon-Captured Soap
Calgary Co-op has started producing “carbon-captured” soap, by utilizing carbon capture technology installed at its head office on Macleod Trail, according to CTVNewsClagary.ca.
"Carbon dioxide emissions from heating appliances at Calgary Co-op's head office are captured by our carbon unit and converted into potassium carbonate or pearl ash, which is used to make carbon-captured soap," the company said in a statement Friday.
The company claims the carbon used in the soap is not released into the atmosphere once consumed, stating that it has a positive effect on the environment.
"The estimated annual carbon dioxide captured at Calgary Co-op head office for this initiative is equivalent to planting more than 300 trees," Co-op said.
