Aerosols are tiny particles formed both naturally and anthropogenically; naturally formed aerosols are dust whipped by wind, sea salt, sulphate compounds arise by natural processes and plants release organic materials into the air and aerosols formed by anthropogenic activities are soot, sulphates from the burning of fossil fuel, fly ash from thermal plants & nitrates ..

The world’s first negative emissions plant that turns carbon dioxide (CO2) into stone has begun operations in Hellisheidi, Iceland. In it, the CO2 is captured from ambient air, bound to water, and sent to more than 700 meters underground. There, the CO2 reacts with the basaltic bedrock and forms solid minerals, creating a permanent storage ..
