Coal-Fired Power Plants (CFPPs)
Causes of greenhouse gases, Including NOx
Several greenhouse gases, including NOx, are increasing due to human activities in the following areas:
- Burning of fossil fuel (for example, coal-fired power plants),
- Logging (mainly contributes to carbon monoxide),
- Agriculture processes,
- Use of chlorofluorocarbons (CFC) in holon fire suppression and refrigeration
The chart below shows the three major gases contributing to greenhouse gas emissions along with their
source by sector.
