Overview

Any mention of the "greenhouse effect" tends to ignite controversy. While the rising atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases-especially carbon dioxide- are certainly among the most pressing issues today, theoretical and perceived consequences have been subject to conjecture and misinformation.
That raging debate has obscured an important fact: scientists and engineers are hard at work on methods to reduce CO2 emissions, and devise practical methods for their remediation.
Greenhouse Gas Carbon Dioxide Mitigation: Science and Technology
sheds light on the most recent advancements, documented by two of the world's leading researchers on CO2.
Aware of the complexity and still-unknown factors behind climatic change, the authors consider the need to make CO2 mitigation viable for both environmental and economic gain. To that end, Professor Halmann offers new insights into interesting chemical pathways for the conversion of CO2 to useful products. Steinberg adds real-life engineering solutions, applicable to heavy CO2-producing industrial processes, and improving efficiency of energy conversion.
Exciting theories and pilot projects are also testing the potential for CO2 utilization, conversion, reduction, and disposal. Greenhouse Gas Carbon Dioxide Mitigation: Science and Technology reports on the use of biomass, such as ocean fertilization and "energy farms," to put CO2 to practical and safe use.
Professional and academic readers involved with CO2 research will find Greenhouse Gas Carbon Dioxide Mitigation: Science and Technology an invaluable roadmap for information and inspiration-a way to move beyond argument, and into action.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Halmann (Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel) and Steinberg (chemical engineering, Brookhaven National Laboratory) document recent research and applied technology for reducing the effect of carbon dioxide (CO2) on the atmosphere. The use of waste CO2 as feedstock and the reduction of CO2 emissions are discussed, ways to separate CO2 from waste-stream gases are outlined, and the utilization of fossil fuels with reduced emissions is explored. Also treated are bioconversion procedures, alternative fuels, electrochemical reduction, and heterogeneous photoassisted reduction. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
