Carbon Sequestration Estimation and Nitrogen Footprint Assessment

[January 28-30, 2019]

Sponsor : Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), New Delhi

Venue     : Department of Hydrology, IIT Roorkee                                                                                                     Download Course Details

Rising worries about the climate changes has led to research findings for reducing the amount of CO2 being produced by human beings to stop significant increases in global temperatures. Sequestration of CO2 is an advanced and efficient technology to store increased concentrations of the gas from atmosphere in to the geosphere. The emphasis of this course is on understanding the various processes through which CO2 can be captured and stored, and to recognize the various techniques for experimental study of the process.

An oceanic phytoplankton bloom in the South Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Argentina. Encouraging such blooms with iron fertilization could lock up carbon on the seabed.

Another goal of the course is to comprehend the idea, concept and various aspects of Nitrogen footprint. The techniques and methodologies (practical as well as numerical) involved to address the assessment, from developing remedial technologies will be reviewed in sufficient technical detail so the participants can apply their knowledge in real-time application studies. A review of regulatory requirements will also be included; economic constraints that play important roles in the selection of appropriate strategies and techniques will also be discussed.
