Chen, J.; et al. (2018): A keystone microbial enzyme for nitrogen control of soil carbon storage

Chen, J.; Luo, Y.; van Groenigen, Kees J.; Hungate, B.; Cao, J.; Zhou, X.; Wang, R. (2018): A keystone microbial enzyme for nitrogen control of soil carbon storage. In: Science Advances 4 (8), eaaq1689. DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.aaq1689.

"[...] Our results suggest that, through responses of a single enzyme system to added N, soil microorganisms drive long-term changes in soil C accumulation. Incorporating this microbial influence on ecosystem biogeochemistry into Earth system models could improve predictions of ecosystem C dynamics."

Forbes: Scientists Develop Lab-Made Mineral That Will Suck CO2 From The Atmosphere

"Scientists have found a way to rapidly create the mineral magnesite in a lab both inexpensively and potentially at scale. This could be coupled with carbon sequestration, a process in which carbon is injected and stored underground, typically in depleted oil and gas fields. Reducing the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere can be both a result of reducing input as well as increasing output of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere."
