Today, up to 40% of vehicle emissions are from lorries.
Swiss scientists have proposed a way to reduce the harmful emissions of lorries and buses using a carbon dioxide to liquid conversion system. So far, only the design of the system has been developed, and a working prototype should appear in the next few years.
Transport makes a significant contribution to total greenhouse gas emissions, and lorries account for up to 40% of all automobile emissions in Europe.
Scientists at the Lausanne Federal Polytechnic School have come up with a new way to reduce the impact of lorries on climate change. The system they’ve developed will capture the carbon dioxide in the exhaust pipe of a vehicle and liquefy it. Then, the liquid will accumulate in a tank that’s located on the roof.
The collected fluid can be drained at a service station. Subsequently, it can then be reused, for example, in the production of fuel.
