It is well known facts that vehicular transport are a major source of air pollution by its emissions from the combustion of fuels and are becoming a cause of concern in urban areas. Typical engines burn gasoline to run vehicles and emit carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and water vapor in the form of exhaust gases. But what if there were a way to run an engine with a source that’s not only cleaner than hydrocarbon fuels but also more abundant? The answer is YES: By using the compressed air. The use of compressed air for running an air turbine is more environmentally friendly than typical engines because there is no combustion involved in producing shaft work. Additionally, the abundance of air makes the resource readily available when needed. A bike is developed that runs on compressed air named as Air-O-Bike by Prof. Bharat Raj Singh, Director, SMS, Lucknow and featured in Limca Book of Records-2014. The demonstration as road show is carried out by CEO & Secretary, SMS, Lucknow, Mr. Sharad Singh on Feb 12, 2016. From the above demonstration, it is concluded that if this technology is implemented widely in developing countries, it can curb 50% to 60% emission and ultimately could check the global warming issue up to great extent.
