They’re making an electric car that captures carbon as it moves.


Vehicles are one of the biggest contributors to pollution on our planet, and for that, electric vehicles are the future, but if an electric car were produced that simultaneously captures carbon while driving, the future would look much better.

And now the students Eindhoven University of Technology They created a prototype electric car that removes and stores carbon dioxide from the air while driving on the road. It was developed with the aim capture more CO2 than is emitted over the entire life cycle of a vehicle.

This prototype electric car is called Earth (EM-07) and for its production, they used recycled plastic, which can be shredded and reused both outside and inside. They also opted for polycarbonate instead of glass for windows as it is more environmentally friendly and introduced a modular lighting system.

While there are no details on the powertrain, New Atlas said it is equipped with a 22kW motor and nine 2.3kWh modular battery packs.

They also joined photovoltaic cells to upper surfaces to increase range, and they also added regenerative braking to squeeze more range out of the batteries.

Now students are trying to get a patent for this technology, which captures air directly and passes through the grille, purifying the air as the car moves. They specify that, on average, for every 20,600 km driven annually at an average speed of 60 km/h, up to two kilograms of CO2 can be eliminated.

If this technology were eventually patented and used in most electric vehicles, it would help the global effort to reduce carbon emissions.
