Hundreds of graduate opportunities could open in the green sector after it was revealed that over 13,000 jobs could be created in Scotland over the coming decade, thanks to "carbon capture" storage technology.

A huge rock formation has been found under the Moray Firth, near Inverness, which will be able to store 100 years-worth of carbon dioxide from Scotland's industry, according to The Daily Record.

Overall, 27,000 jobs could be created around the United Kingdom from carbon capture technologies and spin-off industries.

Professor Eric Mackay, from Scottish Carbon Capture and Storage, told the news provider that the possibilities of burying carbon dioxide deep under the sea are extensive.

"This is an exciting moment in the development of carbon capture and storage. The potential is immense," he said.

Many jobs are opening in Scotland and - according to Talent Scotland - over two-thirds of people would consider moving to the country for work.
