Combustion of any fuel results in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions contributing in the climate change. Carbon dioxides (CO2) make more than 99% of all GHG.

In order to limit the man-made impact on climatic system, in 1992 UN accepted the Convention on Climate Change (ССС), and in 1997  - the Kyoto Protocol to CCC, which came into force in the international scene in 2005. Russia is a member-state of CCC and Kyoto Protocol.
