Carbon Scrubbing Vehicles

Students at Eindhoven University of Technology have built a carbon net-zero electric car prototype which includes a CO2 scrubber in the front grill. Built from sustainable, recycled and/or reusable materials and components, with solar cells to extend range, the electric car can also scrub 2kg of CO2 for every 20,600km driven. Meanwhile in the US, CO2Rail is developing carbon scrubber rail cars that can be added to existing trains to scoop and scrub air as the train travels while also harvesting energy to power the process from regenerative braking.
