Preventing hot emissions is one of several plans to balance climate change. But not much development has been done in this technology so far.
Currently, instead of removing carbon from the air, special attention is given to reducing its emissions. Last year itself, the International Energy Agency had said that such technology would have to be brought at the earliest, which can capture carbon. For many countries around the world, this will be needed to meet the net-zero carbon emission target.
