Any chemical compound of nitrogen and oxygen (NOx) as a by-product of combustion that forms smog in the presence of sunlight.
See nitrogen oxides.
a family of gases that result from the burning of fossil fuels like coal and natural gas. Nitrogen oxide is a component of acid rain.
Nitrogen oxide is formed during incineration as the nitrogen in the incineration air is oxidised. Emissions of nitrogen oxide contribute to acidification, eutrophication and “smog”, and can cause direct damage to vegetation.
Colorless, sweet-tasting gas emitted directly by automobiles and trucks
A gas formed in high temperature environments such as coal combustion. It is a harmful pollutant that contributes to acid rain.
any of several oxides of nitrogen formed by the action of nitric acid on oxidizable materials; present in car exhausts
A byproduct of high temperature combustion and a contributor to ozone pollution, smog and the greenhouse effect.
the second leading gas contributing to the formation of acid rain
An intermediate chemical ingredient in the processes leading to the formation of nitric acid. Introduction Task Process Information resources Guidance Dr. Bravo Ms. Alarcón Dr. Sosa Dr. Soto Mr. Sanchez
Product of combustion from transportation and stationary sources and a major contributor to the formation of ozone in the troposphere and to acid deposition.
Product of combustion from transportation and stationary sources and a major contributor to acid deposition and the formation of ground level ozone in the troposphere.
A by-product of electricity generation and a contributor to ozone pollution, smog and the greenhouse effect.
One of the exhaust emissions of an internal combustion engine. NOx is produced by the combination of nitrogen and oxygen due to the high temperatures in the internal combustion process. NOx emissions are regulated by Federal law.
Gas by-product of combustion that is harmful to the earth's atmosphere.
is an undesirable gas that can be created when coal is burned. State-of-the-art boilers burn coal more efficiently so that very little nitrogen oxide is created.
