Abstract

It has been widely believed that CO2 emissions into the atmosphere have increased steadily and become a major contributing factor to global warming over the past several hundred years. This is mainly attributed to burning coal, oil and natural gas for electrical generation, transportation, industrial and domestic needs. Growing CO2 concentration in the atmosphere will disrupt global climate, which in turn causes a rise in the sea levels, floods in lowered level areas and damage to the ecosystem. Therefore, immediate solutions are urgently needed to reduce CO2 emission into the atmosphere.
