University Of Lagos Is Set To Unveil A Zero-emission Car

By - - [ Education Science/Technology ]

The University if Lagos is set to unveil a Zero-Emission Car manufactured by a research team in the institution.

A zero-emissions vehicle, or ZEV, is a vehicle that emits no exhaust gas from the onboard source of power. Exhaust gas contains harmful pollutants to the health and the environment such as particulates (soot), hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, ozone, lead, and various oxides of nitrogen.

Prof. Dixon Akinleye, Chairman, Sub Committee (Abstract), made the revelation at a news conference in Lagos to announce the institution’s 14th Research Conference and Fair.

The zero-emission car is one of the products of research grants of about N5 billion that the university has attracted in the last one year.

Prof. Samson Adeosun, the Lead Scientist, led a group of students from the Faculty of Engineering to achieve this feat.

What can you say about this new Research Development?

This what faculties of engineering in our institutions are ment to be doing.

They are not trained on practical basis which contributed to high rate of unemployment in the country.

Nice but I don't think that will be possible because there is no way the total power put into the engine will be equal to the power given out by the engine, there must be a power loss

This is great, welldone guys. This would really bring about so much progress in dealing with global warming if the mechanism could be incopotated into all generators, motorcycles, and virtually everything that makes use of an exhaust valve that emits substances such as Carbon monoxide, soot and any other that contributes to global warming.
