About the book
Global climate change is intensifying and is increasingly recognized as a major challenge that requires an urgent response from scientists and other communities. Reducing the emission of greenhouse gases especially Carbon Dioxide is an essential process to mitigate climate change. Capturing and storing atmospheric carbon dioxide is the process called Carbon Sequestration. Through this process, the atmospheric carbon dioxide is captured by trees, plants, and other vegetation through the photosynthesis process and stored in biomass and soils. Enhanced agricultural practices, reforestation, urban management could increase the carbon sequestration capacity. Carbon is now a priced environmental commodity in the global marketplace therefore the response from the government, and individuals’ commitments are increasing over the years. Better understanding and analysis of the current knowledge is essential in identifying key areas for research and development for the potential future use of carbon sequestration. This book addresses the latest carbon management approaches that will combat the increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
The proposed book hopes to target the understanding of carbon capture by various processes such as Physical, Chemical, and biological processes of carbon sequestration and the enhancement of natural carbon sequestration in different ecosystems for sustainable management of carbon. This book aims to provide valuable information for researchers in environmental sciences, carbon capture companies, policymakers, and the public.
