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 considerable interest in carbon 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.
