Eucalyptus is a plant that absorbs large amounts of carbon dioxide from the air. That is because growing trees are the biggest consumer of pollutants in the atmosphere – they are turned into oxygen. This allows not only improved air quality but also helps reduce greenhouse gases.
Eucalyptus plantations for cellulose production are considered “true aspirators of CO2 from the atmosphere”. Do you know why? Because 80% of tree trunks are composed of carbon, which is taken from the air, in the process of photosynthesis.
