Carbon Sequestration by Mineral Carbonation

Given the evidence supporting the view that burning fossil fuels is contributing to global warming and a potential dangerous climate perturbation, there’s┬áconsiderable interest in┬ácarbon storage. So-called Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS) could be done many ways such as increasing soil organic matter and planting more trees, ocean storage, burial in deep geologic formations, and mineral carbonation.
