Combustion of solid fuels that includes coal and biomass

Combustion of solid fuels such as coal and biomass linked with the generation of undesired by-products that emit directly into the atmosphere and result in climate change. Specifically, the release of NOx is a source of acid rain that ultimately increases the level of nitrogen in the soil and terrestrial water bodies. Also, the presence of NOx in the environment produce secondary pollutants such as photochemical smog and volatile organic compounds.
