Carbon Sequestration in Alborz

The UN-backed Carbon Sequestration Project is expected to be launched in Eshtehard District in Alborz Province in the near future, according to Hossein Mirrajabi, director of the provincial office of the Forests, Range and Watershed Management Organization. The decision to pilot the project was made at the 10th meeting to review CSP, a joint effort by the government and United Nation Development Program in Tehran, Mehr News reported. CSP was successfully implemented in Birjand, South Khorasan Province, in 2001, and the project has now expanded to 21 provinces.  Carbon sequestration involves capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere or from large-scale stationary sources like power plants before it is released into the atmosphere. Once captured, the CO2 gas (or the carbon portion of the CO2) is put into long-term storage. This helps to either mitigate or defer global warming and avoid dangerous climate change.
