Activated Carbon prepared from Sugarcane Bagasse(SC) was selected as the suitable adsorbent for CO2 sequestration and an experimental analysis was carried out to study the effectiveness of adsorption of the vehicular exhaust on the adsorbent. The adsorbent was prepared by slow pyrolysis of Sugarcane Bagasse at 600oC. Because of the increasing level of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere due to our dependence on fossil fuels, the need to create a cost efficient,reusable material with a high CO2 adsorption capacityhas become necessity. In this paper the FTIR analysis of the SC600oC was carried out. The vehicular exhaust was injected into a thin film reactor after H2S removal. The effectiveness of adsorption was tested at an emission testing centre while removal of H2S was tested by simple qualitative analysis.
