blue carbon

Organic carbon, called blue carbon, is CO2 captured off the ocean coast, mostly through seagrass beds, marshes and mangroves. These ecosystems, made up of plants, which, through the photosynthesis carried out, incorporate CO2, with the carbon being sedimented under them, contribute significantly to the reduction, and consequent mitigation, of CO2 in the atmosphere. The aforementioned plants are extremely efficient in retaining this component (even more efficient than terrestrial forests), preventing the CO2 from returning to its cycle - which would return it to the atmosphere and contribute to the greenhouse effect. The mentioned coastal systems develop on the coast, in regions characterized by high population density, contributing to their degradation, affecting their contribution to sustainable decarbonization and consequently in the...
