Moreover ‘this’ energy can be of great help with reducing and preventing air pollution that can lead and contribute to the greenhouse effect by replacing a significant part of the fossil fuels. Also, besides from the fact that it can be the source of our electricity, nuclear energy also plays an important role in providing clean
Presented in this chapter are the various related literature to establish a strong framework of this experimental endeavour. Mercury Contamination Wang, F., Jiang, & C. Cheng (2006) claimed that the mercury entering the atmosphere account for about 30% of its total amount each year because of human activity especially coal burning, mining, and industrial activities thus increasing the mobilization into the environment raising the amounts of mercury released in the atmosphere, soil, and the ocean
