It can be seen that the share of energy used in the transportation and industrial sectors is just slightly greater than the world share. The demand for energy to supply heating and cooling, and to operate household appliances, in the residential sector is nearly equal to that needed to provide heating and cooling and operate office equipment in commercial buildings. 1 World energy demand by economic sector – 2002.

The introduction of the catalytic converter on gasoline vehicles has reduced the emission of NOx by over 90% compared with a vehicle without the device. In addition to the chemical effects of ozone and smog formation, there is increasing interest in the health effects of particulate emissions, which are primarily a feature of coal combustion and diesel engine exhaust. The particles are formed through a complex process involving unburned hydrocarbons, sulfur dioxide, and NOx, primarily in fuel-rich flames such as those inherent in diesel engines and the pulverized coal combustion systems used in power stations.

These include both exhaust emission standards for vehicles as well as emissions regulations for large fixed installations, such as fossil-fueled power stations. These regulations have been pioneered in the USA by agencies such as the California Air Resources Board (CARB), and the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), but similar measures have now been adopted in most of the developed world. On a global scale, there is increasing evidence, and concern, about the role of CO2 and other so-called ‘‘greenhouse gases’’ on global climate change.
