Carbon capture on farm with Rock on Soils and SOPA

By 8th March 2021 No Comments

Listen to “Carbon capture on farm with Rock on Soils and SOPA” on Spreaker.

Rock on Soils is a project exploring whether spreading crushed rock onto agricultural land can capture large quantities of carbon in the ground.

Taking carbon out of the air is a key part of the fight against climate change, and the rock that’s used is a by-product of quarrying, so it’s an exciting prospect.

The EU-funded project is being led by the Scottish Organic Producers Association (SOPA), and a range of academic and farming partners.>p>

To find out more, Anna is speaking with Dunkeld beef and sheep farmer Alex Brewster, Doug Christie, who’s got a partly-organic mixed farm in Leven in Fife, and Ehsam Jorat, a senior lecturer in geotechnical engineering at Abertay University.
