Video: Biomass Harvesting and Storage (AirMiners Event Series)

„We at AirMiners continuously strive to find novel, potentially impactful methods of carbon removal; our panel event on Biomass Harvest and Storage (BHS) represents just that! Problem: Since biomass is essentially photosynthetically captured carbon, when plant biomass dies and decomposes, it releases its carbon back to the atmosphere as CO2 and other GHGs via the Carbon Cycle. Solution: BHS is a CDR method in which dead or live biomass is harvested via collection or selective cutting, and then either buried underground or stored aboveground to slow or prevent biomass from decomposing. BHS thus provides a way to break the Carbon Cycle and remove atmospheric CO2.“
