Long-Term Carbon Sequestration Using Charcoal

Long term carbon sequestration is highly dependent on the recalcitrance of organic matter in soils. If the carbon to be sequestered is not recalcitrant in the soil, microbial decomposition of the organic matter will reintroduce the carbon into the
atmosphere as carbon dioxide.
