Abstract

This paper considers the role of technology in emission reduction strategies. This includes carbon sequestration, use of renewable emission- free and environmentally friendly energy sources, energy conservation efficiency, atmospheric variability studies modeling of mixing height and the use of biofuels [bioethanol and biodiesel] as measures to check the continuous release of poisonous gases into the environment. Data on variations in temperature according to height for a particular environment was computed for three weeks. Average readings were used to model the mixing height for that particular environment. This model aimed to determine the most effective height stack to guarantee maximum dispersion of any plume released around that particular environment. Attempt was also made to analyse the negative impact of gaseous emissions in an immediate environment. Some of such negative impacts discussed in this research paper include: Stratospheric ozone layer depletion, the issue of acid rain deposition and the greenhouse effect. The focus is on achieving a healthy and emission-free environment
