Table 5-9 shows a comparison of the GHG benefits attributed to the sequestration project illustrated in Figure 5-3. The example assumes the following:

Calculations were conducted assuming a minimum required project duration of 55 years [based on the Te of 55 years (Moura-Costa and Wilson, 2000)] and 100 years [based on the equivalence time of 100 years; see Chapter 2 (Fearnside et al., 2000)]. It is clear from this example that, depending on the accounting method used, different amounts of carbon benefits accrue to the project, as is shown by the following results:
