The objective of this study was to develop a new process for the dissociation of CO gas. A mixture of gases was subjected to treatment with ultrasound and excited with a flotation cell. Ultrasound 2 2 was able to break the very stable bonds in CO. This study examined the dissociation of CO gas, using a copper catalyst and physical sequestration with activated carbon and monoethanolamine, with hydrogen and helium as reductive and acidic agents for sequestration, respectively. The problem is that
