Geologic and biologic sequestration — powerful for combating climate change and protecting ecosystems.


Do you know that some carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is necessary? CO2 allows some solar radiation to stay in the Earth’s atmosphere – important for heating our planet’s atmosphere. In plain language, Spencer LaBelle, a civil and environmental consultant, covers how and when excessive CO2 became unbalanced by human-generated activities. Next, he covers how capturing and sequestering CO2 helps protect our Earth’s ecosystems. The process permanently stores carbon dioxide to prevent emitting into the atmosphere and is commonly referred to as a carbon sink.

Two types of carbon sinks collect and hold carbon: geologic, which Spencer covers, and biologic sequestration. Both are necessary and powerful for combating climate change and protecting ecosystems. Spend 10 minutes with SCS Engineers to learn more.
