Langkaer Gymnasium og HF | AARHUS, DENMARK
Langkaer Gymnasium, Aarhus, Denmark has been thinking about how it could tap the Biosphere as a Sustainable CO2 Trap. The biosphere, including the upper soil layers, contains carbon which is exchanged with the atmosphere via carbon dioxide. Around 1/8th of the total volume of atmospheric carbon dioxide is exchanged annually. The amount of carbon in the biosphere depends on the use of the soil and the amounts range from nearly no carbon in cities to a great deal in non-cultivated woods. Their project will attempt to find ways in which the biosphere can aid in reducing the amount of carbon dioxide present in the atmosphere, in a sustainable manner.
Representing Langkaer Gymnasium are Jenny Tran, Anders Løchte Jørgensen, Hakim Ben Abdallah (students) and Niels Henrik Würtz (teacher).
