ABSTRACT
Since the beginning of the 20th century global warming has accelerated and greenhouse gas emission has been on the rise, too. This is partly because of using out of date technologies and vehicles. During the thermic treatment processes a great amount of carbon-dioxide gets into the air, as a result of which global warming gets more intensive. This paper analyses greenhouse gas emission using the Life Cycle Assessment of the thermic treatment processes.
