How much CO2 is produced by mineral water springs?

Tuesday, 15 July, 2014

An interesting paper on CO2 produced by natural springs in Slovakia was recently published in the Environmental Earth Sciences journal by Springer. The authors (lead by L. Kucharic of the State Geological Institute of Dionýz Štúr, Bratislava, the Slovak country representative in ENeRG) deal with mineral waters enriched by CO2, their monitoring, genesis of CO2 and estimated annual CO2 production, which is compared with annual anthropogenic CO2 emissions in Slovakia.
