Our UK-leading Carbon Capture and Utilisation (CCU) plant that will capture 40,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions every year, will allow us to build a brand-new plant that will produce the world’s first sodium bicarbonate made with net zero carbon emissions: Ecokarb®. ​


This brand-new plant will cement Winnington as the home of world-leading innovation and sustainable manufacturing. Creating jobs that are highly specialised and well paid, producing a product that results in millions of pounds of exports and helping the UK towards the goal of net zero emissions, this is a pioneering project, demonstrating to industry in the UK and across the world how it is possible to create valuable resources from waste emissions. ​


Ecokarb® will be exported to over 80 countries worldwide and with high-end and pharmaceutical uses it will be used to help treat millions of people across the globe. ​

“In 2014 we started a journey of transforming our proud heritage into a business that will continue for many years and this £50m investment is just the latest stage of our long-term plans, securing the future of high-quality manufacturing in Northwich.” Martin Ashcroft, MD of TCE.
