What is the greatest absorbing medium for Carbon via emissions.

Is there a natural carbon absorbing medium.

Carbon dioxide?

The kind of rock called "peridotite" has a mineral component that reacts with carbon dioxide under natural conditions. Removes the CO2 from the atmosphere as a carbonate mineral. It is a slow process though.

Your question "What is the greatest absorbing medium for Carbon via emissions" I can't answer. Doubt if anybody can. What does "greatest" mean in this context?

I guess the greatest is most efficient, readily available, reusable potentially its a line in the sand I guess. But we should be thinking along these lines with many more Coal fired power stations in the pipeline around the world how can we clean it up is where I'm headed.

You can always burn carbon.

Are you talking elemental carbon? I'm not sure why you would want to absorb it or even how to. It come is 3 major forms.

Diamonds. They are actually quite valuable. My wife would get very upset if I tried to absorb her diamond.

Graphite. In demand for pencils. Writing with a pencil does use up the graphite, but it still exists on the paper. It is just spread out, not absorbed.

Amorphous carbon. Has many uses. Common forms include charcoal and activated charcoal. Charcoal is used as a fuel, so you can burn it to get rid of it, but that is technically not absorbing it. Activated charcoal is actually one of the best absorbents of impurities there is due to its high surface area. It is a great way to filter out bad tasting stuff in water. Not sure how to absorb it.

Coal is primarily carbon.
