Carbon Sequestration and the Dairy Sector

Almost every meeting on climate change these days mentions the importance of carbon capture and when in the agricultural context, carbon sequestration. Recognizing that carbon sequestration is very easy to talk about though much harder to quantify, a group of dairy companies and customers are collaborating to try to identify a way to pragmatically calculate the impacts of positive practices known to enhance carbon sequestration. Known as C-Sequ the project ultimately aims is to develop a ‘bolt on’ module for existing GHG LCA models allowing them to also incorporate the carbon sequestration component, which they currently do not..
