ABSTRACT
Acidic gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2) and sulphur dioxide (SO2), emitted due to human activities cause global environmental problems. Carbon dioxide as the most significant greenhouse gas contributes to global warming. Sulphur dioxide causes acid rains. The main source of their emissions in Lithuania is combustion of fossil fuel in the energy production sector. The characteristics of Lithuanian natural minerals opoka and glauconite as potential sorbents for acidic gases have been evaluated.
