Approaches to remove CO2 from the atmosphere

Soil carbon sequestration


As plants grow they capture CO2 from the air through photosynthesis. The carbon is not only stored in the plant itself but also in the soil around the plant. Through using certain types of agricultural and land management practices, the amount of carbon stored in the soil can be accumulated. These methods are known as regenerative agriculture and include methods such as no-till farming (no disturbance of the soil through tillage), using cover crops,  addition of plant reside and improved grazing management. Soil carbon sequestration can be easily deployed on existing agricultural land and would not require substantial amounts of extra land.
