Module: Carbon Capture and Sequestration
Students will learn the basics of carbon capture and sequestration (CCS). Spiraling from the carbon cycle activity, students will investigate how CCS could be an important mitigation strategy for carbon emissions. Juerg Matter lectures and students discuss their written homework responses.
In this lesson, students will:
- Define carbon capture and sequestration
- Understand the importance of developing carbon emission mitigation technologies
- Investigate the potential impact of CCS through a discussion of their homework assignment

Carbon Capture and Sequestration Reading
Reading for carbon capture and sequestration lecture class.
TEACHING NOTES / CONTEXT FOR USE
See lesson plans.
There are three main CO2 storage reservoirs / options (see reading assignment):
2) Geologic (deep saline aquifers, depleted oil/gas reservoir)
3) Mineral carbonation
What are the pros & cons of storing CO2 in the ocean, in geologic reservoirs or in form of minerals (mineral carbonation)? Post a 400-500 word written response to Courseworks. Cite the assigned reading.
