CO2 sequestering is a process that removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Emissions by mankind has put the natural carbon cycle out of balance, so that the atmosphere has an abnormally higher level of CO2. Long-term storage of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) is our objective.
Man made sequestering is one of our primary objectives and it can be performed in a variety of ways and at varying scales of operation. The problem we face, is that for over 150 years we have been putting CO2 into the atmosphere in quantities that are staggering and in order to remove them we need to perform an equal and opposite staggering engineering feat. That’s the bad news. The good news is that it is possible and it can be done. Furthermore, some of the techniques available to us are able to provide us with byproducts that are useful to us and can possibly be used to offset the increased acidity in the oceans.
The cost to perform sequestration has been considered too expensive. One should note that this has always been what critics say of new ventures, and often turn out to be far less expensive than initially thought especially when the scale of production increases and new techniques and processes are discovered.
Carbon sequestration is the process of capture and long-term storage of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2). Methods to do this have been researched and will continue to. We believe that they now need to be developed and refined, and scaled to into production.
