Scrubbing the Skies: Wood Harvesting and Storage with Wood Vault for Durable Carbon Sequestration: Scientific Needs and Societal Impacts

Thu, February 9, 2023, 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EST; hosted by Institute for Carbon Removal Law and Policy

Wood Harvesting and Storage (WHS) is a novel hybrid Nature-engineering method for carbon dioxide removal (CDR) and semi-permanent sequestration. In this method, sustainably sourced woody biomass is buried in Wood Vault, an engineering structure designed to maintain anaerobic conditions to prevent wood decomposition. Participants will discuss the carbon sequestration potential of this approach, as well as critical questions related to monitoring and verification, and the challenges of full-carbon accounting.
