CARBON DIOXIDE EMISSIONS ACCELERATING RAPIDLY

Eco-Economy Indicator – CARBON EMISSIONS
April 9, 2008

Eco-Economy Indicators are twelve trends that the Earth Policy Institute tracks to measure progress in building an eco-economy. Carbon emissions are an important trend to follow because as atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide rise, so does the earth’s temperature.


CARBON DIOXIDE EMISSIONS ACCELERATING RAPIDLY
Frances C. Moore

Global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from the burning of fossil fuels stood at a record 8.38 gigatons of carbon (GtC) in 2006, 20 percent above the level in 2000. Emissions grew 3.1 percent a year between 2000 and 2006, more than twice the rate of growth during the 1990s. Carbon dioxide emissions have been growing steadily for 200 years, since fossil fuel burning began on a large scale at the start of the Industrial Revolution. But the growth in emissions is now accelerating despite unambiguous evidence that carbon dioxide is warming the planet and disrupting ecosystems around the globe.

Re: Solution for the immediate reduction of greenhouse gas (CO2) emissions

Dear Sir,

Our company is specialized in research and development in the field of environmentally sound technologies.

We know this letter is totally unbelievable because the yesterday's physics and chemistry did not resolve the CO2 emission problem up today on the commercially viable way .

Clear Air is our solution for carbon dioxide (CO2) emission reduction produced from the combustion of fossil fuels. Now available.

Our CO2 Emission Reduction Technology called Clear Air, can be quickly implemented in the different fields of application including smoke stacks, and land-sea-air transport. CO2 emission reduction is done in-situ with an optimal reduction of 99.9%. This solution has not secondary polluting effect.

Clear Air is an effective and relatively cheap technology, mounted behind the CO2 source.
For example in a car mounted on the exhaust system it is capable to reduce the CO2 emission from 40% even up to 99.9%.
In the case of passenger cars or heavy goods vehicle or large off road vehicles the technology of construction and manufacturing does not need to change.
The Clear Air device can be mounted onto the existing parts of the vehicle.

The Clear Air know-how together with a manufactured prototype is our property. The efficiency is measurable and can be immediately tested. Exact technology exists with computerized modelling for the CO2 reduction process and a controllable prototype equipment for use as well.

The principle behind the CO2 emission reductions solution is part of a secret know-how. The intellectual property is offered for use by Licensing (Technology Transfer).

The Environmental Unique Solutions AG. is delivering only technology and know-how for the Clear Air, in form of Customized Licenses.
We do not manufacture and sell the device based on this technology.
