International Journal of Learning and Change (IJLC), Vol. 11, No. 3, 2019

Abstract: Transport ensures the flow of material flows and provides people with amenities, but transport is a major source of danger to people's health and life, due to the emission of harmful pollutants. The composition of the exhaust gases of internal combustion engines depends on the composition of the fuel in terms of its quality and the engine's technical state and mode of operation. There are over 200 chemical compounds in the car transport bombs, many of which are harmful to humans, biospheres. Transport emissions: carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide (NO2), hydrocarbons, aldehydes, particular matters and so on. The listed pollutants cause global changes in atmospheres that contribute to the formation of ozone holes, global warming or flooding. The article will analyse the negative impact of transport on the environment and evaluate the hypothetical transport process using an electric truck in a steel pipe carriage.
