||An evaluation of the quality of air carried out by hygiene authorities in a coffee roasting plant highlighted the presence of carbon monoxide, not due to the burners as originally suspected but to the roasted coffee grains themselves. The problem was confirmed in other enterprises which were also inspected. Various measures are proposed, including in particular local exhaust, ventilation design and the layout of the premises.
