The review discusses both abiotic and biotic technologies and describes the mechanics involved in sequestering carbon dioxide (CO2). In an attempt to reduce the net rate of rise in atmospheric CO2, carbon sequestration entails transporting or storing CO2 into various long-lived global reservoirs, such as biotic, geological, pedologic, and marine layers. Carbon sequestration is the process of removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere by biological or geological mechanisms. The method of keeping carbon in a stable, solid state is known as sequestration. Technologies are being developed which is explained in the main body of review to reduce the rate at which land-use change, energy, process industries, and the process of cultivating soil in raising the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide.

Keywords: Climate change, greenhouse impact, soil management, geological, oceanic, forest, agriculture and mineral sequestration
