We’ve talked about Carbon Removal, Carbon Capture, & Carbon Utilization, but what is Carbon Sequestration? While we need to prioritize decarbonization, that will not be enough. We need to supplement these efforts with innovations in Carbon Tech.
We’ve talked about Carbon Removal, Carbon Capture, and Carbon Utilization, but what is Carbon Sequestration?
Carbon Sequestration is the process of capturing and storing atmospheric carbon dioxide. This process locks the CO2 away so that it does not continue to warm the atmosphere. There are three main types of carbon sequestration: biological, geological, and technological.
Biological is the storage of carbon in vegetation, soils, and oceans. All of these naturally absorb carbon dioxide, and enhancing these natural processes will continue to lower the levels of CO2 in the air.
Geological is the storage of carbon in underground geologic formations. The CO2 is pressurized until it becomes a liquid and then is injected into porous rock formations.
There are also many other Technological advancements that remove carbon such as graphene production, direct air capture, and engineered molecules.
While we need to prioritize decarbonization and reduce usage, that simply will not be enough. Even if we curb emissions 100%, the atmospheric temperature will continue to rise. We need to supplement these reduction efforts with innovations in the CarbonTech sector
