Nitrous Oxide Emissions from Adipic Acid Production in the Automotive Industry: What You Need to Know
Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a potent greenhouse gas that is 273 times more effective at trapping heat than carbon dioxide. The global adipic acid industry is a major source of N2O emissions, accounting for about 134 million tons of CO2 equivalent per year.
This article presents a study that assesses the potential for N2O emissions abatement from global adipic acid production. The study finds that there are a number of commercially available technologies that can be used to reduce N2O emissions from adipic acid production. These technologies can reduce N2O emissions by up to 90%, and the cost of abatement is relatively low.
The study concludes that there is a significant opportunity to reduce N2O emissions from global adipic acid production. The adoption of N2O abatement technologies could help to mitigate climate change and improve air quality.
