Carbon Capture and Sequestration: Carbon diamond in rough

| | No Comments

article image This is the process of capturing waste carbon dioxide (CO2) from large point sources, such as fossil fuel power plants, transferring it to a storage site, and dumping it where it will not enter the atmosphere, normally an underground geological formation. The aim is to prevent the release of large quantities of CO2 into the atmosphere (from fossil fuel use in power generation and other industries) that cause environmental pollution. It is a potential means of mitigating the impact of…Read More

Carbon sequestration: A strategy to mitigate climate change

| | No Comments

article image Anthropogenic activities, especially burning of fossil fuels, such as coal, oil and gas have caused significant increase of CO2 in the atmosphere from about 280 to 380 ppm for the last 250 years is one of the main reasons causing global warming. Potential adverse affects include rise in sea level; a shift in the intensity and frequency of floods, drought, wild fires and storms; changes in the amount, frequency, intensity, time and distribution of rainfall and also disturbance in…Read More

Carbon monitoring, sequestration a way forward to carbon credit

| | No Comments

article image The process of capturing and long-term storage of atmospheric carbon dioxide is known as carbon sequestration. It is helpful in mitigating global warming. Sequestration of atmospheric CO2 can be achieved by reducing fossil fuel consumption and identification of sinks for long term storage of carbon dioxide. Terrestrial sink includes plants and soil. Both of them are known as main storage house of carbon dioxide. Agriculture is central to economic growth and development of Pakistan. No doubt…Read More
