Carbon Monoxide Mining

Carbon Monoxide in Mines • MineARC Systems

Carbon Monoxide Carbon Monoxide Atom. Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a colourless, odourless, and tasteless gas that is slightly less dense than air. In the atmosphere, CO is produced from incomplete combustion and is present in exhaust gasses of vehicles and other engines, as well as from the combustion of most fuels.

Carbon Monoxide (CO)

Carbon monoxide (CO) is an odourless, colourless gas which forms when the carbon in fuels doesn’t completely burn. It is usually generated by motor vehicles and industry but can also be formed during bushfires. Indoors, carbon monoxide is formed by unflued gas heaters, wood-burning heaters, and contained in cigarette smoke.
