A process consisting of separation of carbon dioxide from industrial and energy-related sources, transport to a storage location, and long-term isolation from the atmosphere. (IPCC)
An integrated process in which CO2 is separated from a mixture of gases (e.g. the fl ue gases from a power station or a stream of CO2-rich natural gas), ompressed to a liquid or liquid-like state, then transported to a suitable storage site and injected into a deep geologic formation. (IEA, 2014)

REDD-plus includes conservation, the sustainable management of forests and the enhancement of ..., climate protection, carbon, carbon cycleThe term used to describe the flow of carbon (in various forms, e.g. as carbon dioxide) through the atmosphere, ocean, terrestrial biosphere and lithosphere. (IPCC)A natural process remove about half of each year's anthropogenic CO2 emissions from the atmosphere, but it isn't totally understood ..., carbon sequestrationThe uptake and storage of carbon. Trees and plants, for example, absorb carbon dioxide, release the oxygen and store the carbon. Fossil fuels were at one time biomass and continue to store the carbon until burned., carbon store approachesHSI proposes a single framework for terrestrial carbon stores and AFOLU that merges LULUCF with the proposed REDD framework. To that end, Graham et al. recommend a flexible carbon stores approach that rewards developing countries with both high and low historical deforestation rates for ..., terrestrial carbon stores

Narrower terms:
land-use, land-use change and forestry, land-useLand use refers to the total of arrangements, activities, and inputs undertaken in a certain land cover type (a set of human actions). The term land use is also used in the sense of the social and economic purposes for which land is managed (e.g., grazing, timber extraction, and conservation). ..., CO2 CaptureCollection of GHG emissions from a GHG source for storage in a sink. (GHGP, 2014), carbon sequestration in industrial processesThe uptake and storage of CO2, which can be sequestered by plants or in underground or deep-sea reservoirs (WRI, 2013); The uptake of CO2 and storage of carbon in biological sinks.
