The UK is currently committed to trialling this technology in a gas power station in Peterhead.

But the technology is so far untried at scale. It also adds to the cost of gas burning and reduces the efficiency of power stations.

The number of people in favour of fracking for shale gas in the UK has fallen below 50%, a new poll suggests.
Just 49.8% were in favour of shale gas extraction when researchers from the University of Nottingham asked 3,657 people earlier this month.

David Cameron Faces Tory Backlash Over Fracking Set For Southern England


David Cameron is set to boost extra compensation offered to communities affected by controversial "fracking" to an average of £800,000 in a bid to bypass opposition in Tory heartlands.

The announcement will come as the British Geological Survey (BGS) publishes a long-awaited study into the extent of shale gas reserves in the south of England. It is expected to show reserves in Kent, Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire, all areas where the Conservatives enjoy support.
