ABSTRACT
The article discusses the effects of black carbon (BC) emissions, a combination of anthropogenic mixtures of sulfate, fly ash particles, organics, dust, nitrate and natural aerosols, in the environment. It mentions that BC is produced from the incomplete burning of solid biomass, coal and diesel fuel. It cites that black carbon is considered as a major contributor to air pollution and global climate change. The authors remark that emission inventory can help determine BC factors.

    Background, aim and scope Fly ash, a by-product of coalfired power stations, is substituted for Portland cement to improve the properties of concrete and reduce the embodied greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Much of the world's fly ash is currently disposed of as a waste product. While replacing...

    Evidence from the atmosphere indicates that global emissions of methane may have been broadly constant since the early 1980s or growing only slowly. This suggests that whilst emissions from some sources mayhave increased with increased activity, emissions from other sourcesmay have gone down....
