To more effectively sequester biomass and carbon, just add salt
Salting and burying biomass crops in dry landfills could economically capture greenhouse gases for thousands of years Harvesting miscanthus, a quickly-growing grass that can be used as a bioenergy crop or harvested, salted and buried to sequester the carbon it took in from the atmosphere. Reducing global carbon dioxide emissions is critical to avoiding a climate disaster, but current carbon removal methods are proving to be inadequate and costly.
