Reducing Carbon Dioxide Levels through Carbon Sequestration

There has been a growing interest as to what is identified as global warming over the past five years. Studies have demonstrated that the earth’s atmosphere has become warmer thanks to the increasing levels of carbon dioxide, which trap heat that would normally exit into outer space. Much focus has additionally been placed on the causes of this phenomenon, such as the burning of fossil fuels, using coal-fired power plants, and deforestation. The purpose of this research is to discuss how carbon dioxide emissions can be reduced by the use of carbon sequestration. The significant challenge being addressed by this effort is to identify an industrially and environmentally viable carbonation route that will allow a decrease in the amounts of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, thus, reducing global warming.
