you can sequester a considerable amount of carbon by afforestation Planting new forest is only capable of capturing about the same amount of carbon dioxide that has been released by burning down forests. This is negligible. All the news headlines are reporting about deforestation in Brazil, but what they won't tell is that releasing this one-time carbon ...

Let's compare biochar production from wood with burning wood: 1000 tonnes of biochar sequester 3000 tonnes of CO2 and the production of said biochar creates 5000 MWh of energy as heat, requiring 10625 solid cubic meters of wood 10625 solid cubic meters of wood would produce 21356 MWh of energy as heat if directly burned, but if wood is burned, it retains ...

Deliberate biochar production differs from open burning in two important ways. The first is oxygen availability as you said. Limiting the amount of oxygen means far more of the biomass ends up as solid carbon rather than CO2. The second is particulate pollution. Burning biomass always produces particulates, but open burning is worse than burning in a ...

When organic waste decomposes, it produces a mix of methane and carbon dioxide. This is called biogas. Any of these two are gases containing carbon and they can be converted to each other. You convert methane into carbon dioxide by burning it. The benefit of this process is that it gives energy. You can convert carbon dioxide into methane by combining it ...
