Carbon Dioxide Emission and Mitigation

Handbook of Environment and Waste Management - Volume 3: Acid Rain and Greenhouse Gas Pollution Control
Carbon dioxide is the largest contributor to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and its influence on the atmosphere is becoming more of a concern. Several sources of natural carbon dioxide emission and mitigation exist such as organism respiration and decomposition and forest fires as well as mitigation controls by sequestering from foliage and absorption from oceans. Anthropogenic sources include energy production from fossil fuels, industrial production and agricultural production, and have been adding to atmospheric levels at an exponential rate. Several processes to help mitigate carbon dioxide include capturing, separation and storage. This paper covers a review of carbon dioxide emissions and mitigation practices.
