Frame of Image . In fact, large part of all energy sources, that are crucial to economic activities in households, transportation and industry, comes from fossil fuels. However, among various fossil fuels, coal and oil are b a s i c a l l y composed of carbon and contain a large quantity of impurities. Therefore, no matter how high t h e i r combustion efficiency may be, air pollutants, including particulate matters(PM), sulfur dioxide(SO2) a n d nitrogen dioxide(NO2), and global warming substances such as carbon dioxide(CO2) are emitted during the process of combustion. On the other hand, although such gases like liquefied natural gas (LNG) and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) are fossil fuels, their components are different from those of oil and coal and their contents of impurities are lower. Naturally, in the p r o c e s s of combustion, they emit much less air pollutants and global warming substances than coal and oil. Korea has achieved rapid economic growth since the 1970s, mainly driven by heavy and chemical industries. K er, because the nation primarily relied on coal Howev a n d oil as its energy sources, it suffered from air pollution triggered by SO2 and PM. Particularly nearby i n d u s t r i a l complexes and in metropolitan cities, pollution by SO2 has worsened and was the cause of
