Work commences on carbon sequestration project

Jun 26, 2017
Author: Goyder Institute


The Goyder Institute for Water Research is pleased to announce the commencement of a new project:

Salt to C: carbon sequestration through ecological restoration at the Dry Creek Salt Field

Project leader: Professor Sabine Dittmann, Flinders University

Lead research institutions: Flinders University, University of Adelaide, UniSA, DEWNR

This project will scientifically assess whether the restoration of the Dry Creek salt fields will be a pathway towards assisting carbon neutrality for the South Australian Government. The main outcome of this interdisciplinary research project will be a feasibility assessment of Blue Carbon and co-benefits derived from salt field restoration, with a market ready pathway to carbon accounting and registration that is relevant for achieving South Australia’s climate ready policy.
