Remove Duplicate Values from Calculated Column Result

I have a calculated column that is using the values in a response column, searching it for keywords, and returning the values associated with those keywords from another table. The problem I am running into is that there are duplicates because there is overlap between keywords. For example: 


car emissions through use of fossil fuels are harming the environment



car emissionsuse less cars
fossil fuelsuse less cars



I am using the function in a calculated column in the problem table. 

CONCATENATEX('Solutions Table',IF(SEARCH('Solutions Table'[Keyword],'Problem Table'[Problem],,999) <> 999,'Solutions Table'[Solution] &"; ",""))
This works great until I have an example like above. I would like it to only return "use less cars" instead of "use less cars; use less cars". I have tried everything I know how to do to get the duplicates to go away but cannot find any solution. Could someone please help me out?

maybe you can try this in PQ. However, we still need to text.combine if one problem has different solutions.
