ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the issue of controlling emission of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2) to slow the pace of climate change. Topics discussed include researches related to utilizing CO2 to get some benefit from it such as using CO2 to recover fuel, using CO2 to improve the recovery of renewable and relatively clean geothermal energy and using CO2 in making plastic.
