Extra parentheses: must be discarded

c should not be redefined here
a, b, d, e are not use in the function: no need to define them as local

However, nc, nh, and no are *global* variables (they are not local to 
the module): are you sure this is what you want?

Hi Miguel,

Even outside a package your code is not working. Try the following:

CO2[c_, h_, o_] :=
Module[{nci, nhi, noi, nc, nh, no},
	nci = c*(10/12);
	nhi = h*(10/2);
	noi = o*(10/32);
	nc = nci;
	nh = nhi - 2*noi;
	no = nc + nh/2;
	2*no + 5*nh

CO2[60, 35, 5]
