Carbon Removal LCA Services
Carbon removal technologies and practices are used to remove carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere, in order to mitigate the effects of climate change. These technologies aim to reduce the overall levels of CO2 in the atmosphere by capturing and storing greenhouse gas. Some examples of carbon removal services include:
- Carbon capture and storage (CCS) involves capturing CO2 emissions from power plants and industrial facilities and storing them underground.
- Direct air capture (DAC) uses machines that absorb CO2 directly from the atmosphere.
- Afforestation and reforestation involve planting trees and other vegetation to absorb CO2 from the atmosphere through the process of photosynthesis.
- Soil carbon sequestration aims to increase the amount of carbon stored in soils.
Carbon removal technologies are considered a potential solution to the challenge of reducing carbon emissions. They can be used to offset emissions that cannot be reduced through other means.
Life cycle assessment is used to determine the net carbon removal. Quantification methodologies such as those developed by Puro Earth for various carbon removal technologies are available which detail the process and scope for the life cycle analysis. LCA Design would ensure the methodology is correctly applied and provide an LCA report and calculation model for your company.
