Artificial CO2 sequestering
Artificial CO2 sequestering is the set of techniques used to capture and sequester CO2.
Principle behind artificial CO2 sequestering.
These techniques consist in extracting the CO2 contained in fuels using various processes, concentrating this carbon dioxide (pure compressed gas, liquefied gas, carbonic snow or carbonates...) then storing it in order to isolate it from the atmosphere.
Different techniques for storing CO2
Currently, there are three CO2 storing methods:
Attempts to stimulate natural carbon sinks by geo-engineering are also being tested (ocean fertilisation).
