Recycling in the office does not need to stop at the desk or printer. The office break room is a treasure trove of opportunity to improve your company’s carbon footprint. The amount of trash that can accumulate, even from an office of twenty people, can make a big impact on resources.
Vehicle exhaust systems carry away the gases that are created when the fuel and air are burned in the combustion chamber. These gases are harmful to humans and our environment thus the laws regarding emissions in highly populated areas. In larger cities all the traffic means a higher concentration of these harmful gases are released into the air every single day. It is in the best interest of everyone living and working in these areas to have every vehicle be performing at peak levels without having a high emission rating. That might be why in many larger cities we don’t see very many really old worn out vehicles, they can’t pass an emissions test.
Many things can produce high HC’s such as too much or even too little fuel, not all cylinders firing, advanced timing, bad catalytic converter, or an air pump that isn’t working. These are the most common causes. Tune up’s can prevent most emission problems. NOX is generally worse on higher compression engines. All engines produce NOX but the use of EGR valves will cool and slow down the burn rate of the engine’s combustion. This considerably lowers NOX values.
It varies WIDELY depending on driver skill. As well as track conditions, elevation above sea level, ambient temperatures, humidity, and pre-race preparation. But most fall between 12.3 to 12.9 ets with 112 to 119mph trap speeds on street tires. Times can drop well into the 11s with drag radials, a good driver, and good conditions, as well as proper pre-race preparation.
To do this catalytic converter recycling project for kids, glue two CDs together to make them a pair. Decorate these CDs with your choice of decorative cloth, art paper or magazine pages, and then accentuate them with beads or flowers and other accessories.
A lot of paper goes to waste each month by all types of businesses and a recycling expert can help your company decide how best to handle waste paper, cardboard and related materials. These are often recycled for their fibre content and used in other products later. Large scale industrial companies may be able to broker their paper waste to outside companies and your recycling service will know how to do this.
There are many different “free mods” for the Supra TT. I will cover just a few of them here. The ones I will cover fall into three categories, boost control, EGR disabling, and TTC or True Twin Conversion.
Next time you go out for a drive, don’t forget about the important part the exhaust system and muffler in your car plays for your vehicle and the environment around you.
