Polestar pledges to produce the first carbon-neutral car by 2030

"...Volvo's performance brand Polestar has made electrification a key part of its strategy ever since it first introduced a hybrid GT back in 2017, but it still sees plenty of room for improvement in terms of sustainability. The company has revealed plans for a forthcoming model that will be entirely carbon neutral, which would involve a dramatic rethink of its entire production process to avoid the "cop-out" of carbon offsetting. Polestar currently has two vehicles in its stable, the luxury Polestar 1 GT and the all-electric Polestar 2..."

Why are thieves across Canada stealing catalytic converters?

"...What are catalytic converters?Catalytic converters have been in widespread use in North American vehicles since the 1970s. Their purpose is to make car exhaust from internal combustion engines less toxic, converting substances such as carbon monoxide, nitric oxide, nitrogen oxide and hydrocarbons, into less harmful carbon dioxide and water vapour. The part looks like a shell wrapped around the exhaust pipe (it’s actually one pipe going in from the engine and another for the exhaust to blow out)..."

Speeding toward improved hydrogen fuel production

"...Hydrogen is a sustainable source of clean energy that avoids toxic emissions and can add value to multiple sectors in the economy including transportation, power generation, metals manufacturing, among others. Technologies for storing and transporting hydrogen bridge the gap between sustainable energy production and fuel use, and therefore are an essential component of a viable hydrogen economy. But traditional means of storage and transportation are expensive and susceptible to contamination..."

Police report rise in theft of valuable car part

"..."Someone might steal one for its resale value, but more likely a thief will sell it to a recycling facility for the small amount of valuable metal it contains," the RCMP said in a release. "A new catalytic converter costs between $100 and $200, but having one professionally installed will add hundreds of dollars to the bill. "..."
