Nitrogen oxides

Nitrogen Oxides

Levi, Marissa, Abigail


Description

Description

  • Nitrogen oxides (NOx) consist of nitric oxide (NO), nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and nitrous oxide (N2O) and are formed when nitrogen (N2) combines with oxygen (O2)

  • Produced during combustion

  • A greenhouse gas

  • Contributes to ozone depletion


Sources

Sources

  • Primary source: burning fossil fuels

  • Human activities

  • lightning

  • fertilizers

  • Agriculture

  • Oil and gas industry

  • Transportation


Health effects

Health Effects

  • Irritates the lungs

  • Increases the chance of asthma

  • Respiratory infections

  • Visual Impairments

  • rapid, burning spasms

  • swelling of throat

  • reduced oxygen intake

  • a larger buildup of fluids in lungs and/or death


Air quality standard

Air Quality Standard

  • Contributes to acid rain, smog, ozone depletion

  • Nationally, average NO2 concentrations have decreased substantially over the years
