English term or phrase: carbon sink potential of cutaway peatlands
Is there anybody who knows how to translate this sentence into Italian? Peatlands is "torbiere" but what about the rest of the phrase?
Thanks

la possibilità di torbiere abbandonate di diventare pozzi di carbone


Explanation:
I found an english explanation of it on the internet and thanks to my scientific knowledge I am quite sure this could be a good translation. I am not 100% sure because there too little context!

il ruolo potenziale delle torbiere abbandonate come scarichi per CO2


Explanation:
Si parla della possibilità delle torbiere di funzionare nello smaltimento dell'anidride carbonica in eccesso, noto gravissimo problema odierno che favorisce l'effetto serra.

Carbon sta, per brevità, per **carbon dioxyde**, cioè anidride carbonica.

Meglio invertendo:

Il potenziale ruolo ecc.

il potenziale delle torbiere abbandonate come serbatoi di carbonio


Explanation:
"Carbon sink" si traduce con serbatoio di carbonio (o anidride carbonica) o pozzo di carbonio (attenzione, non carbone!), o al limite potrebbe anche essere lasciato in inglese.

Scusate avevo letto male... il testo da tradurre non si riferisce al gas serra, probabilmente il riferimento non e' corretto
