Re: GSBN:carbon sequestering



Hello David,

composting seems to be more promising than burning; persume the emission
during composting will balance out the CO2 "binding" effect during the time
of growth,
at least if grain has been grown by an organic farmer. A part of the needed
nutricion for the next harvest can be produced by composting straw. The
missing portion could be contributed after having digested tasty grain
products and good beer.

Excellent research field. Cheers,

Martin
