Land reclamation activity is extensively increase in the Asian countries, particularly in Indonesia. Adverse impact of land reclamation varies from physical change of the bay, change in the chemical content of the bay, diminishing biological creatures lives on the bay, etc. The new reclaimed area is producing enormous carbon emission during the construction and devastating potential carbon sequestration area due to the quarry area utilisation. The research project is intend to seek the environmental impact of land reclamation in the carbon footprint approach with several available land reclamation technique.
