Task Three

      To fix the problem of gas money and pollution from gas and trash, we will make a car that runs on trash or “trash power car” The trash will be burned to heat the engine and run the car, and the exhaust will pass through an air filter before being released as a harmless gas. This vehicle falls under the advanced engine controls area. The engine would need to have something to function the burning and converting of trash into energy.

 

 

Task Four

Dear AEC - Advcanced Engine Components Limited,
      For our school project we have decided to make a new source of energy. We want to use trash to power cars. We propose that the trash be burned to heat the engine and run the car. Then the exhaust will pass through an air filter before being released as a harmless gas. We ask that someone evaluate this proposal. We feel this could change the way the environment is and how much money people will save. Thank for your time.
