Chapter 11 FOSSIL FUELS: ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS
1998-6-25 · Sulfur Oxides. Sulfur oxides arise during combustion from oxidation of sulfur in sulfur-containing fuels (some coals and some petroleum-based products). The principal product is sulfur dioxide: S (in fuel) + O2 → SO2 Sulfur dioxide has an annoying odor and it irritates the eyes and respiratory tract. Still, SO2 itself is not highly dangerous.

2018-2-20 · Which of the following did not cause the reduction in sulfur dioxide emissions from Sudbury''s smelters? A) improving emission-control technology B) passing regulations requiring reductions in sulfur dioxide emissions C) permanently …
The type of combustion fuel used affects the amount of sulfur oxides and nitrogen oxides emitted. Use of natural gas results in negligible sulfur dioxide emissions from the fuel compared with high-sulfur fuel oils. Fuel oil with a low sul-fur content is preferable to fuel oil with a high sulfur content if natural gas is not available.
Air Emissions and Air Quality | FIRST for Sustainability
Sulfur dioxide (SO2): Sulfur dioxide (SO2) is mainly produced by the combustion of fuels such as oil and coal and as a by-product from some chemical production or wastewater treatment processes. Emissions can be reduced through the use of alternate fuels such as low sulfur coal, light diesel or natural gas, emissions control technologies.
