Definition - What does Zero Emissions mean?
Zero emissions refers to a vehicle, automobile, or engine of any kind which produces no atmospheric pollutants. It is the concern for our environment that prompts global interest in transport or other use of technology that produces zero-emissions. Air pollutants are considered a threat to national security by military experts including The U.S. Department of Defense or National Intelligence Council. Alternative fuel sources must be used to prevent further damage to the environment.
Safeopedia explains Zero Emissions
Most damage attributed to emissions is caused by motor vehicles or other combustion engines, including industrial machinery. These engines require fuel sources, which when burned are harmful to the environment. There are effective alternatives to the fossil fuel engines, including electric engines, which can be implemented to ensure zero harmful emissions enter into the environment and cause damage to our ecosystem or human health.
