The major source of carbonaceous soot released into the
environment is from the incomplete combustion of fossil
fuels and other organic matter. Principal sources of
soot emissions are coal burning furnaces, refuse
burning, code production processes, wood burning in home
fireplaces, the open burning of waste, and gasoline and
diesel powered engines.
