EP&SE Publishes Special Section on Carbon Dioxide

Developed to expand on current global conversations around climate change, a new special section from the January/February 2019 Environmental Progress & Sustainable Energy (EP&SE) journal showcases the current thinking related to the reduction of carbon emissions, the utilization of CO2 that can ameliorate its presence and provide useful products, and storage options.

A focus on the global objective to limit carbon emissions

Editor Martin Abraham’s Editorial states, “This issue was developed in part to expand on the current global conversation around climate change and the impact of emissions from fossil fuel combustion. The recent actions taken during COP 24 in Poland, although not as substantial as most would have liked, demonstrate the global objective to place limits on our carbon emissions, and scientists across the world are seeking new technical solutions that can guide policymakers on viable choices. Several of the manuscripts included in this special section can speak directly to those needs and opportunities.” Click here to read this EP&SE special section FREE for a limited time only.
