Methods to Capture Carbon Dioxide from the Atmosphere Apart from Planting Trees : A Review

Authors(1) :-Tadappa Ganesh Kumar

The goal of carbon sequestration is to take CO2 that would otherwise accumulate in the atmosphere and put it in protected and permanent storage. Most proposed methods would capture CO2 from concentrated sources like power plants. In fact, on-site capture is the most sensible approach for large sources and initially offers the most cost-effective avenue to sequestration. For distributed, mobile sources like cars, on-board capture at affordable cost would not be feasible. Yet, in order to stabilize atmospheric levels of CO2, these emissions, too, will need to be curtailed. This review paper suggests that extraction of CO2 from air could provide viable and cost-effective alternative methods like fake plastic trees, Scrubber devices and Basalt rock cliffs to change the transportation infrastructure to non-carbonaceous fuels.
