Carbon Capture and Sequestration: An Exploratory Inhalation Toxicity Assessment of Amine-Trapping Solvents and Their Degradation Products

Carbon dioxide (CO2) absorption with aqueous amine solvents is a method of carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) from flue gases. One concern is the possible release of amine solvents and degradation products into the atmosphere, warranting evaluation ... [Published Environmental Science & Technology - 23 hours ago]

Increasing External Effects Negate Local Efforts to Control Ozone Air Pollution: A Case Study of Hong Kong and Implications for Other Chinese Cities

It is challenging to reduce ground-level ozone (O3) pollution at a given locale, due in part to the contributions of both local and distant sources. We present direct evidence that the increasing regional effects have negated local control efforts for ... [Published Environmental Science & Technology - Aug 28 2014]
