About this book

This book contains thirty peer-reviewed chapters that will provide the readers with updated research progress in the field of environmental chemical research related to fossil fuel utilization. Furthermore, its international flavor will ensure that a worldwide broad cross section of scientific and engineering research is covered throughout the book. The book is logically divided into the following six sections: Pollutant Emissions; Carbon Sequestration; Greenhouse Gas Emission Control; Utilization of CO2 for Synthesis Gas Production; Utilization of CO2 for Chemical Synthesis; and Combustion Byproducts.
