Global warming is a serious environmental concern that affects humans, wildlife, and ecosystems. Carbon dioxide reduction is the need of the hour as it a major constituent of global warming. The quantum of carbon dioxide released in the exhaust depends on the number of carbon atoms present in the fuel used. The present study investigates the reduction of engine out carbon dioxide emission. For carbon dioxide reduction post combustion capture sys- tem is used. In post combustion capture system carbon dioxide is absorbed by using absorption catalyst. In this capture system, carbon dioxide is absorbed after the combustion. Among various absorption catalyst, monoethanolamine (MEA) is used, as it can react more quickly with carbon dioxide than other absorbents. Monoethanolamine is continuously injected in the exhaust mani- fold. Empty chamber is added in the exhaust manifold for increasing the resi- dent time of the reaction of amine with carbon dioxide. MEA reacts with carbon dioxide forms ammonium carbamate. Carbamate is approved by the Environ- mental Protection Agency as an inert ingredient, used for insect and rodent control in areas where agricultural products are stored.
