6 Cars To More Sustainable Technologies

More and more people become aware of the importance of sustainability (or at least learned to speak that word) and firms look to cause less adverse impact, producing more intelligence. 
 Green Car: not quite what we're talking about.

Although the cars, the main means of movement of humanity, not just the main villain, they are present everywhere. And where there are cars, no pollution. Of course, the functionality of a car (be it a car, ship or plane) is undeniable, but the big problem is in production and supply.
For that cars leaving the inertia, fossil fuel combustion and natural non-renewable, finite resources cria whose burning gases that affect the environment copiously. From an economic standpoint, their scarcity means rising prices. A barrel of oil, for example, has a strong influence on world economy: just a slight rise in its value to the stock exchanges around the world bordering on collapse.

That's why the automotive companies included in their goals, renewable solutions in order to rely less on a fuel that is limited, polluting and increasingly expensive. In addition, the materials that make up an automobile are produced from fossil fuels. The challenge is to manufacture cars using renewable components, cleaned, and make them move the same way. I list below six sustainable technologies for the future of automobiles, and many of them are already reality and are present in vehicles that we see around us. 1. Regenerative brakes Regenerative brakes convert the kinetic energy (released during braking) into electrical energy. They are used in some cars and even motorcycles. In electric and hybrid, energy is stored in the battery which makes the car move.

2. Hydrogen

Hydrogen is renewable and unlimited supply. It is the most abundant element in the universe and its burning is clean. Hydrogen-powered cars will no doubt be the most popular in the future.

Several automakers have prototypes of such vehicles, but there are still difficulties for these vehicles to be mass produced. One is the high production value, about ten times more than an electric vehicle. Another problem is the hydrogen itself, an element still expensive. Moreover, there had to be a huge adjustment at gas stations so that vehicles could be fueled by hydrogen.
3. Start & Stop system

Uum major driver of sustainability in automobiles, is already used in various brands and should eventually be used in most vehicles of the future, because its concept is quite effective. The Start & Stop works so that when the vehicle approaches a traffic sign or closed faces traffic ahead, the vehicle will automatically shut down during the stop and go back to be connected when the driver take your foot off the brake and accelerate.

Depending on the type of vehicle, the reduction in emissions is up to 15%. The system also helps save fuel.
4. Electric cars

 Your cell phone is dead? Enjoy and stop to recharge the car together.
The electric cars are actually cleaner production that there are absolutely zero carbon emitting.
However, by using electricity, these vehicles end up polluting the environment indirectly, since most of the electricity produced in the world comes through fossil fuels. Studies show that by replacing the conventional electric vehicles would not have major changes in the emission of CO2, since the production of electricity would increase proportionately. There is still a major drawback: it takes several hours to charge the battery.
An electric car, however, can solve the pollution problem in cities, which are a great enemy to our health and well-being of the planet. To get an idea, most air pollution in São Paulo comes from automobiles. Electric vehicles also considerably reduce the noise, they are totally silent. 5. LED Lighting
Several vehicles have adopted the headlamps and LED flashlights in on your line. The reason is simple: in addition to having a duration of up to 100,000 hours (that would give more than 11 years continuously connected) and lead to power savings up to 70%, headlights and flashlights, LED lights and not much more warm.

 Why took so long to discover things simple? 6. Green production
We saw above five technologies that are already happening and that will become increasingly popular. It is now possible to have an electric vehicle that does not pollute the air, with regenerative brakes using the brake as a replenishment system shutdown when the vehicle stopped for fuel economy, LED headlamps and lanterns with better lighting, energy saving and virtually infinite length.
It is a big step in the sustainability of our primary means of transportation, but there is another technology that is indispensable when it comes to sustainability: the use of green materials in the production of a vehicle. To understand some possibilities, nothing better than looking for a car recently launched and produced in Brazil. Offer: Citroen Aircross
A good example of a car going in this direction is the most sustainable Aircross Citroën. Made in Rio de Janeiro, uses 20 kg of recycled and natural materials with an index of 85% recyclability.
To produce about 1 kg of carpet made from PET bottles for example, are removed from the environment about 18 2-liter bottles. As for the production of 1 kg of PHB are captured about 2.5 kg of CO2 from the atmosphere. Multiply these figures by 2000 units monthly Citroën intends to market only in Brazil and see that these numbers are quite encouraging.

 Click to visit the Citroen Aircross. Below are the key elements used in the manufacture of Aircross:
* TNT apparent (recycled PET soda bottle), used as spare parts of the exterior finish of the roof and the coats the sides of the trunk.
* TNT apparent non-(recycled PET from soda bottle), used parts and accessories such as strengthening the external finish of the ceiling.
* Curauá natural fibers, jute and sisal (plant material and renewable source), which form the cap and rear side facing the trunk.
* Felt (cotton patchwork and apparel industry), which serve as the basis of acoustic insulation and carpets.
* Black Fiber (recycled PET in black). Used as finishing of carpets.
* Fiber Hayon (recycled PET), upgrading of carpets.
* Leather: used to finish the seats, door linings, coating the wheel and other internal components.
* Woodstock (wood dust and resin PP), the medallions of the doors.
* Polypropylene recycled in the stop-clays.
All we can become more sustainable in traffic by adopting measures to promote fuel economy and lower emissions of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. We must drive more slowly and softly, keep vehicle maintenance in the day and let the tires always spanned. These are just some basic tips that everyone can adopt and only depend on ourselves.
