An analysis of greenhouse gas emissions from the production of commercial fertilizers, in relation to their use in carbon-sequestration reforestation projects Dolejsi, Douglas

Abstract

This paper aims to analyze the environmental impact of greenhouse gas emissions from the production of commercial fertilizers, in relation to their use in carbon-sequestration reforestation projects. It will look at the emissions related to the production and application of fertilizers. It will also analyze the benefits of the use of fertilizers for seedlings and near-end of rotation stands. Finally, the results will be discussed in terms of net carbon storage effects, and any possible implications for landowners looking to make decisions regarding carbon sequestration projects.
