Current sequestration costs are in the range of 1-$300/ton of carbon emissions avoided. The goal is to reduce the cost of carbon sequestration to $10 or less by 2015.

Canadian conference on "Greenhouse Gases: Mitigation and Utilization" 8-12 July 2007
Duane Pendergast, February 16, 2007

I recently received a conference notice of potential interest to Terra Preta researchers and developers.

The conference scope provides for papers on the carbon balance, CO2 sequestration in soil and biomass, mitigation of N2O and methane, enhanced agriculture and forestry, regulatory frameworks for carbon capture and
storage and science for policy development and public understanding.

Long-Term Carbon Sequestration Using Charcoal
Amrith S. Gunasekara, Victor P. Claassen, Thomas Young, and Ronald Tjeerdema, University of California at Davis, 2005

INTRODUCTION
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.
