Modeling The Mechanism Of Carbon Capture And Sequestration (Ccs) In A System

[Full Text]

Keywords: Carbon Capture, Sequestration, model, annual uptake, cumulative, calculus.



Abstract: Rate of carbon sequestration or annual uptake was modeled. Data from Mississippi Delta, ponderosa pine and black walnut, all in USA were used to validate the models. The co-relations of these models for these three sources of data were very high, suggesting that carbon sequestration is modelable and predictable provided that there is a perfect experimental method to capture and sequester the carbon compound with time. This work is a stepping stone to solving carbon capture and sequestration problem of our planet earth. Through a global engineering and technology it is feasible.
