How about burning fats instead of fuel?
The fast moving metropolitan cities necessitates preplanning of transportation and mobile network. With the advancements in automobile industry, these problems has been tackled to a certain extend but has also brought a concern to vehicular pollution. Air pollution today being a major point of debate persuades engineers and scientists to think of something new and pose a solution to this ever growing issue. The search for a solution had already costed us billions of rupees as most of the efforts made until now, are either not practical or too costly to be commercialized. Going green seems an only feasible solution to this. That’s where we need young intellectuals to think upon. Eco green Vehicle challenge brings these debate to college level. The challenge is to design, built and test a vehicle propelled by none other energy source than human power. The vehicle challenge requires application of basic mechanics or mechanical systems to a simple human propelled vehicle. The EGVC event is the first link for the students of diploma or degree engineering to apply fundamentals laws which were previously just the part of their academics. The eco green vehicle challenge event aims to innovate and prevail the idea of Eco-Green vehicle in real practical terms, a vehicle easy to manufacture, is cheap and that too making commercial sense. The Eco green vehicle challenge is the median between last-mile limitations of present mass transportation systems and complexity of future electric mobility by combining their advantages.
Thus through this event the green thought is to be spread. In the very form of a phrase- Combustion to Conservation.
