The article discusses the process of production of carbon dioxide during combustion. As stated, in combustion process, energy is liberated by the chemical reaction between the combustible portions of a fuel like carbon, hydrogen, and sulfur with oxygen present in atmospheric air. Combustion of coal, natural gas and generation of carbon footprint while production of electricity, is discussed.
