Transcript of Carbon Sequestration

Carbon Sequestration-
is the process of capture and long-term storage carbon dioxide (CO2) pollution in our atmosphere.


Geologic Sequestration
Ocean Sequestration
-removal of carbon pollution from our atmosphere and storing it deep in our oceans.
100% natural
Geologic Sequestration
-removal of carbon pollution before it's released into the atmosphere.

is caused by contaminants that enter our environment that causes harm to the ecosystem. (cars, power plants, industries)
Stored underground, via pipelines, in wells and rock formations.

main ways to
recycle carbon pollution.
Capture and transport liquid CO2
Stored in open water
Short-term storage
Pipeline (2 miles deep)
Involves the capture and storage of carbon dioxide by plants and the storage of carbon in soil.
Forest Sequestration
Forest sequestration of CO2 involves the transfer of CO2 from the atmosphere into soils and vegetation.
Reduces The Greenhouse Effect.
Takes CO2 out of the air and is absorbed naturally back into the Earth.
Pollutants from vehicles enter the atmosphere.

Pollutants from power plants enter the atmosphere.
Carbon Dioxide pollution stuck in the atmosphere.
Trees absorb CO2
Corn absorbs CO2
Vegetation absorb CO2
Deposited back into the soil naturally.
CO2 is captured before being release into the air.
Deposited into the ground via pipelines. Long-term storage.

Carbon Sequestration

200,000 acres of plants to offset the emissions from one average power plant.
90 % of carbon dioxide emissions would be reduced each year.
One third of the United States’ carbon emissions come from power plants and other large point sources, such as industrial facilities.

According to National Carbon Sequestration Database and Geographic Information System (NATCARB)

"Carbon Sequestration programs are helping to develop technologies to capture, purify,
and store carbon dioxide (CO2) in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Carbon sequestration technologies capture and store CO2 that would otherwise stay in the atmosphere for long periods of time."

What is Carbon Sequestration?
The total amount of carbon in the atmosphere is about 750 billion metric tons.
Carbon Sequestration methods are capturing the carbon dioxide produced by burning fossil fuels and storing it safely away from the atmosphere.

Releases gas stored in the ocean harming marine life.

Pipelines can be damaged and broke by earthquakes.

Environmentally friendly

Companies using C.S. methods get tax breaks.
