Carbon Sequestration

with one comment

According to web definition Carbon Sequestration is “The capture and long-term storage of carbon dioxide before it is emitted into the atmosphere. One example: a system for filtering CO2 out of the emissions of a coal-fired power plant and pumping the CO2 deep underground.

And, it is on of the 14 Grand Engineering Challenges of the 21st Century, reported wired.

CO2 is the biggest gas contributes towards Global Warming and Carbon Sequestration is seen as one of the solutions to it.

Currently commercial technology for Carbon Storage and Capture (CSC) is available to Coal fired power plants but still lot of research to be done to tape bigger sources such as automobile emissions.

  1. I’ve just written an article about this here at wordpress at FaithfulinPrayer. To me this sounds unsafe to pump million of tons of CO2 into the Earth. There are too many things that could go wrong. I can’t believe environmentalist are for this.
