sequestration of CO2:
Atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide, methane and nitrogen oxide are higher than they have been for 800,000 years. Climate change has already led to an increase in average global temperature of about 1.0°C above pre-industrial levels. The global temperature rise will reach the 1.5°C mark agreed in the Paris Climate Agreement as early as between 2030 and 2052; possibly sooner.
By 2050, the EU Commission wants greenhouse gas emissions to be reduced to net zero. Achieving these targets will require dramatic changes in the economy and agriculture.
To achieve these ambitious climate protection goals, not only must CO2 emissions be reduced, but CO2 must be actively removed from the atmosphere. The technical prerequisites and know-how for this are available. However, a rethinking of soil management and an interdisciplinary approach between agriculture, industry, politics and the capital market are needed.
