What are smoke stack carbon emissions?

    Smokestack carbon emissions are the polluting emissions that come from power plants. 

    Smokestack Emissions are considered a final waste product. However, there are technologies currently in place for recycling these emissions.  Skyonic,  a Texas-based corporation was granted a U.S. patent to remove CO2 from smoke stack emissions by mineralizing it into sodium bicarbonate. The bicarbonate can then be sold for use in glass manufacturing, algae biofuel production, and other areas.

    Smokestack emissions are carbon dioxide, methane and other greenhouse gases emitted through the smokestacks of factories and other powerplants.  Other harmful chemicals from smokestacks that cause smog and soot are sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide.  These have been linked to a number of health issues for communities downwind of the factories, including aggravated asthma, bronchitis, nonfatal heart attacks and premature death.  The Cross State Air Pollution Rule is replacing and improving on 2005s Clean Air Act, and by 2014 it hopes to have cut down sulfur oxide emissions by 73% and nitrogen oxide emissions by 54%.  Meanwhile, the Skyonic corporation has created something it calls “SkyMine” technology, which will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by turning them into sodium bicarbonate – baking soda – which can be recycled for use in things such as glass manufacturing.
