04.03.2010 A Proposal to Investigate Solutions for Preventing Air Pollution in Bilkent University Name: Aylin Solak ID: 20601455 Course: Eng 400 Section: 001 1. INTRODUCTION: Air pollution means that releasing some chemicals and particulate matter which cause damage the natural environment and all living organisms into the atmosphere. In Bilkent University, there are approximately twelve thousand students and a lot of instructors. Many of them have their own cars. Also, there are lots of busses in order to provide transportation of students and staff who works in Bilkent University. In addition to this, there is a factory named Tepe Factory. The gases which release from exhaust of factory, cars and busses are contain sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide in high level. These gases cause air pollution. The purpose of this proposal is to introduce proposed solutions in order to minimize air pollution in Bilkent University. These solutions are filtration of exhaust of factory and motor vehicles according some criterias. ...read more.


All school buses must have filter for their exhaust, and the administrators must make a decision about this situation. That is to say; carrying a filter must be obligatory and it must be controlled regularly. Besides this, students who use cars should be encouraged with seminars to use filters. In addition; posters should take a part to make students pay more attention to this issue. Moreover, the students who are planning to have a new car should be informed to about the hybrid cars which cause any problem to the atmosphere. 4. CRITERIA FOR ASSESSING SOLUTIONS: In order to decide these solutions are suitable or not, they should evaluate according to some criteria which are cost, sustainability, practicality, acceptability and effectiveness. a) Cost: The price paid of air filter for the smokestack of factory will be examined, whether they are suitable according to financial problems or not. Also, the cost of the filter system for exhaust of motor vehicles will be investigated because of determination that this solution is applicable for any person without any financial problem or not. ...read more.


* There should be a meeting with the administrations of Bilkent University to get the information about the possibility of providing for all school busses air filters. * There should be a research about the people who are expert in environment area and live in Ankara to provide seminars about air pollution and their solutions for students, instructors, bus drivers and for the staff of Tepe Factory. Also, the seminars should be informative about air filter systems both for motor vehicles and factories. * I am going to research the opinion of instructors and students about having air filters for their cars. * I will make a survey about hybrid cars with interviewing firms that produce hybrid cars about their cost and the possibility to invite them for seminars for students and to make exhibition of their cars in Bilkent University. * There should a meeting with TDP, which is a group of students who try to solve problems about social awareness, the possibility to generate a group which deals with environmental issues, especially air pollution. 7. ...read more.
