CO2 Sequestration, Biofuels and Depollution

Water is the motive force of all nature. This previous quote from Leonardo da Vinci reminds us that with no water existence is not attainable. therefore, water is one of the most vital wealth for humanity. even so, ingesting water remains to be polluted through man-made toxicals collected through waters in soils and the ambience.

Most of a person’s daily exposure to many air pollutants comes through inhalation of indoor air pollution, both because of the amount of time spent indoors and because of the higher pollution levels found indoors (WHO, 2000a). The occupier largely controls the presence of air pollutants in the home environment. For most countries there are no regulations governing indoor air pollution, although there are regulations and/or guidance governing ventilation in homes (NSCA, 2000a). 7). The problems of indoor air pollution have been long recognised (WHO, 1982b; USEPA, 1994).

4% a year on average (RCEP, 2000). Nearly four fifths of the extra CO2 entering the atmosphere since 1750 is estimated to have come from fossil fuel burning (Rotty and Marland, 1986). 6 Ozone Because O3 is formed by chemical reaction in the atmosphere it is less dependent on emission patterns and tends to be more strongly influenced by meteorology. UV radiation drives these reactions and, as a result, its production is highest in hot, sunny weather. The process can take from hours to days to complete.

2 Lead In many countries during the 1970s and early 1980s the lead content of petrol gradually reduced, maintaining total emissions from vehicles broadly constant. 15 g/l, and in 1987 unleaded petrol was introduced. The reduction in the lead content of petrol showed a very pronounced reduction in concentrations. For example, average annual lead concentrations have reduced from 1170 ng/m3 in 1976 to 40 ng/m3 in 1997 for Glasgow, Scotland (City of Glasgow Council, 1999) (Fig. 9). 3 Nitrogen dioxide In many countries motor vehicles are the principal source of NOx (NO and NO2) emissions.
