Investigating the Potential of Humic Substances as Sorbents for Carbon Dioxide Mitigation: Preliminary Experimental Results
Keywords:greenhouse gases, humic acid, humic substances, absorption, CO2, carbon dioxide
This research explores the potential of humic substances as effective sorbents for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Humic substances are organic compounds found in soil and water and also may be extracted from coal that have been shown to have a high affinity for pollutants, including heavy metals, organic compounds, and gases in the environment. The paper discusses the properties of humic substances that make them effective sorbents, as well as the mechanisms by which they can reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It also reviews current research on the use of humic substances for carbon capture and storage, and discusses the potential for scaling up this technology to have a significant impact on reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Overall, the paper suggests that humic substances have great potential as a low-cost and effective solution for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
