In these days of big multinationals want to be seen as green, how about the likes of Coke & Pepsi converting their bottling plants to run with sequestered CO2?

They could even convert to on-site generation with, say natural gas powered co-gen, plus 'free' CO2 for their drinks.

I don't know where the CO2 originates, but my suspicion is it ALREADY comes from sequestered CO2 in the form of Calcium Carbonate.  I sort of doubt they acquire their CO2 from burning fossil fuels.  I could be wrong....

In days past their was an advertising slogan, "Be sociable - have a Coke". I've heard that Coca Cola and Pepsi might be amalgamating. Their new green energy saving slogan will be on the lines of, "Be sociable - have a Poke"
