The most talked about topic now – ” The eco friendly car”


Imagine being in front of a diesel truck that is spewing smoke into the air while your brand-new all-electric car is reducing carbon emissions. This wish might soon come true. A group of 35 students from the Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands have developed a fully electric, battery-powered EV called a Zero Emission Mobility (ZEM) vehicle that collects carbon dioxide (CO2) as it travels.According to its designers, this sporty all-electric car from the Netherlands that looks like a BMW coupe may change how people perceive mobility for years to come.

The two-seater, known as ZEM, stands for zero emission mobility, and Lahaije claimed that most of its components were 3D-printed from recycled plastics. It is powered by a Cleantron lithium-ion battery pack. He added that the goal is to reduce carbon dioxide emissions throughout the entire life of the car, from manufacturing to recycling. The Eindhoven team calculated that ZEM uses two filters that can capture up to 2 kilogrammes (4.41 lb) of CO2 over 20,000 miles of driving. In the future, filters could be emptied at charging stations, according to their vision.

In addition, the Dutch university has suggested that the student team file for a patent on their CO2 capture filter in light of the success of the vehicle. In the coming years, it will be able to produce and sell them to major automakers if it increases its absorption capacity. The electric car is envisioned as a sporty-looking vehicle with a single passenger area that can accommodate two passengers. Since the project was solely focused on their capacity to capture CO2, the team claims there is room for improvement in both design and construction.

However, one significant issue has been the cost of putting this technology in place. The team developing ZEM has the potential to significantly impact the transportation sector if they can collaborate with authorities and private businesses to market the carbon-capture filter used in their electric vehicle.
