Abstract

Methane (CH 4 ) is a potent greenhouse gas and the second highest contributor to global warming. CH 4 emissions are still growing at an alarmingly high pace. To limit global warming to 1.5 o C, one of the most effective strategies is to reduce rapidly the CH 4 emissions by developing large-scale methane removal methods. The purpose of this perspective paper is threefold. (1) To highlight the technology gap dealing with low concentration CH 4 (at many emission sources and in the atmosphere). (2) To analyze the challenges and prospects of solar-driven gas phase advanced oxidation processes for CH 4 removal. And (3) to propose some ideas, which may help to develop solar-driven gas phase advanced oxidation processes and make them deployable at a climate significant scale.
