The student team TU/ecomotive from TU Eindhoven has developed a sustainable electric vehicle that captures more carbon dioxide (CO₂) than it emits while driving. The prototype is called Zem and it works by controlling the air quality with a special filter. The car stores the captured carbon dioxide, which can later be removed in a safe and none armfull way or be used in some other way. This way, Zem can help reduce global warming. Students will continue to improve the vehicle over the next few years, with the goal of making the car’s entire life cycle CO2-neutral, including its time spend on the road.
