Could Japanese knotweed help fight climate change?

Japanese knotweed has a pretty villainous reputation, but what if there was a way to positively harness its ability to scavenge atmospheric carbon and use it to help fight climate change?

That might sound ambitious but we’ve been looking for more environmentally friendly ways of dealing with Japanese knotweed waste for a number of years and following field trials at our research facility in Surrey we believe we’re onto something.
