I know that it is possible to harness some waste
gasses, such as methane from landfills, as a
source of energy. Is it possible to do the same
with carbon emissions, thereby reducing emissions
and producing energy?
Question Date: 2009-05-20
While methane and carbon emissions are both
waste gases, carbon does not have the chemical
potential when burned or used to generate energy.
Methane can be burned and can thus be harnessed
as an energy source.
