Idle Free

District/Region: Chignecto Central Region

Event: 2012 Canada-Wide Science Fair

Grade 10 - Hants East Rural High School

This project was designed to determine the volume of emissions produced by idling in drive-thrus, and to find a means to reduce it. It suggests two feasible solutions: avoid drive-thrus, or construct new drive-thrus using a more eco-friendly design. In this project, sloped approaches are investigated which would allow vehicles to coast to the take out window, thereby reducing idling emissions and fuel costs.
