Emission of Greenhouse Gases (GHGs) from Burning of Biomass in Brick Kilns

Publication Date Dec 11, 2009


Burning of biomass fuel is an important source of emission of greenhouse gases in the environment. Due to anthropogenic activities, concentrations of greenhouse gases are increasing, having a direct effect on the world's climate, which poses serious threat for mankind. In the present study, emission of greenhouse gases has been attributed to the burning of biomass fuel, i.e., fire wood consumption in the brick kilns located in eight provincial divisions of Punjab, Pakistan. Analysis of collected data concludes that burning of forest wood in 4,000 brick kiln units results release of 525,440 tonne per year of combined CO2 equivalent of greenhouse gases.
