    rates. A common airborne pollutant is carbon monoxide (CO), which is commonly found in diesel exhaust. It is an odorless gas produced from me-thane and non-methane hydrocarbon oxidation.2 The toxic gas eliminates and takes the place of oxygen in the form of carboxy-hemoglobin when it binds to hemoglobin in red blood cells. It also affects the binding sites of heme groups, which complicates the transfer of oxygen to tissues.3 The majority of deaths from carbon monoxide poisoning is brought on from car

    1.2.3 Gasification and Syngas Syngas is a gas mixture of hydrogen and carbon monoxide, which are products from gasfireing any hydrocarbon material such as coal at a high pressure and temperature, 30 bar and 1500 °K. The present of the oxygen is the primary difference between gasification and combustion. When a feed gasfire, the oxygen or air is injected in small amount allowing part of the feed to burn completely which supply the required heat and pressure, then, the heat will break down the feed

    Options What can be done to detect Carbon Monoxide (CO) if it has no smell or color to it? Who is at risk of being exposed to CO? What happens when oxygen is not transported to the body? What can be done to prevent CO particles from binding to oxygen in the bloodstream? One method used for finding possible resolutions to a problem like CO poisoning is to characterize the problem as being outwardly or internally (Creducation.org, n.d.). By means of representing the problem, then information

    One public health problem is carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. CO is a gas that has no odor nor color and can lead to sudden sickness or mortality (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 2011). CO is formed whenever fossil fuel is burned in in an automobile, generator, furnace, grill, or anywhere else (CDC, 2011). As a result, the CO emitted from these sources may build up in spaces that are closed off or semi-closed. Consequently, those individuals, as well as animals, found in these locations
