    It was also revealed that in 1998, a single car in Nigeria emitted 29,600kg of hydrocarbons, 34,000kg of Nitrogen Oxides and 4,029 kg of different carbonate gasses over its average lifespan.[iii] CAUSES OF POLLUTANTS IN VEHICLE 5. Motor vehicle use is now generally recognised as the source of more air pollution than any other single activity in cities around

  • External Stakeholders Of Volkswagen

    Stakeholders As a multinational corporation, the implication of the scandal determines the fate of numerous stakeholders both internal and external. Internal stakeholders comprise of the board, managers and employees while external stakeholders subsume shareholders, customers and suppliers. The economic, political and social impacts of the dishonest practices would shape the fate of Volkswagen and affect the future prospects of the automotive industry. Common shareholders whilst not involved in

  • The Problem of Acid Rain

    chemicals created by the burning of fossil fuels. When coal and oil are burned they release sulfur dioxide (SO2) and two nitric oxides, nitric oxide (NO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) designated by the symbol NOX. These dangerous chemicals come from the smoke that pours from factory chimneys and exhaust from car tail pipes. Once released, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides react with other chemicals in the air, water

  • Volkswagen 's Impact On The World 's Best Known Car Manufacturers

    1584 Words  | 7 Pages

    I. Volkswagen is one of the world’s best-known car manufacturers; unfortunately it has damaged its credibility and reputation with the recent emission scandal that the company was involved in. Volkswagen failed in establishing the triple bottom line, social responsibility, and sustainability. The long and commonly held belief was that the only responsibility of business was to maximize the wealth of its shareholders. Today, however, companies must be socially responsible and focus on what is now

  • Understanding Air Pollution Causing By Nitrogen Oxide

    952 Words  | 4 Pages

    When a huge amount of nitrogen oxide is being emitted into the air it forms smog and acid rain. Acid rain can damage everything that it falls on mainly the environment; it contaminated human resources such as water and etc. Once the acid rain contaminates the water resources it deteriorates the water quality causing more nitrogen to be in the water. With more nitrogen present in the water it upset the chemical balance of nutrients/ minerals that are being consume by the aquatic plants and animals

  • An Error Based Data Acquisition System Used For Carbon Mono Oxide And Nitrogen Oxide Monitoring

    2100 Words  | 9 Pages

    An Error Residual Generator for Fault Detection and Isolation in a Data Acquisition System Used For Carbon Mono-Oxide & Nitrogen Oxide Monitoring Abstract— clean air is a basic necessity for all human beings living on earth, yet about 80% of world’s population breathes air that has pollutants which exceed the World Health Organization’s recommended level. Environmental air pollution has significant influence on the concentration of constituents in the atmosphere leading to effects like global warming

  • Quantitative Stoichiometric Reactions Lab

    reaction of magnesium metal. While heated in the crucible, magnesium reacts with oxygen from the air, and the masses before and after the oxidation are measured. The resulting masses are used to calculate the experimental empirical formula of magnesium oxide. With the empirical formula, we can then compare it to the theoretical empirical formula. Using a crucible and a Bunsen burner, the magnesium metal will be heated to a burning. Simple combustion experiments conducted with crucibles, burners, and balances

  • Using Titanium Dioxide as Photocatalyst to Reduce Pollution

    572 Words  | 2 Pages

    compound acts as a catalyst to produce hydroxyl in the presence of moisture in the air. Hydroxl then can oxidize and convert these harmful pollutants to HNO3. The reason that this is useful is because nitrogen oxide is a common pollutant which has many adverse effects to society. Nitrogen oxides may form into nitric acid which contributes to acid rain, and it also chemically reacts to sunlight and changes into ozone which additionally has many adverse health effects for living organisms and non-living

  • The Minerals and Chemicals within Glass

    produce a product of 75% silica (SiO2) and 25% sodium oxide (Na2O). This mixture will melt and fuse at a much lower temperature of 800°C. Unfortunately, the glass produced with this composition is water-soluble which is also known as water glass. This is not suitable for glass bottle since it need to contain water so, to stabilise the glass, other chemical substance is mixed into the composition such as calcium oxide (CaO) and magnesium oxide (MgO). The chemical mixtures are obtained by the addition
