September 21st, 2022 - Carbon Capture Collective - Sequestering Carbon

Carbon sequestration is very important in fighting climate change. There are 2 main ways to capture carbon: biological and geological. Biological carbon sequestration is the storage of CO2 in vegetation such as grasslands or forests, as well as in soils and oceans. Geological carbon sequestration is the process of storing carbon dioxide in underground geological formations or rocks.

Soil can store soil organic carbon (SOC), as well as carbonates. Carbonates are inorganic and have the ability to store carbon for more than 70,000 years. While SOC usually stores carbon for several decades.

As part of the Carbon Capture Collective, The Belleisle Watershed Coalition, The Kennebecasis Watershed Restoration Committee, and The Hammond River Angling Association , will be planting trees to capture and sequester carbon from the atmosphere.
