Abstract

How green was my valley: Green carbon science focuses on the transformations of carbon-containing compounds in the entire carbon cycle. The ultimate aim is to use carbon resources efficiently and minimize the net CO2 emission. This holistic view also has ramifications for related fields including petroleum refining and the production of liquid fuels and chemicals from coal, methane, CO2, and biomass.
