Is there any waste from geothermal energy production?

    Geothermal energy power stations may emit very small amounts of waste gases, including carbon dioxide, nirous oxide, sulfur dioxide, and hydrogen sulfide.  However, and although any amount of pollution is of course a bad thing, pollution from geothermal plants does not even come close to approaching pollution from a coal burning or other fossil fuel-powered power plant.  When it comes to carbon dioxide, the most important greenhouse gas, a geothermal plant produces 0-0.88 pounds of carbon dioxide emission for every Mega Watt hour of energy produced.  A coal plant, on the other hand, emits 2,191 pound of carbon dioxide per Mega Watt hour of energy.  Clearly, there’s hardly even a comparison to be made!
