" The world needs top minds with experience to change the universe. However, the average masses(cognitively) are left aside. Convincely, these average minds with outstanding track records of leadership, resilience, diligence and passion for growth create space and time to do wondrous things which adds in quota to the development of the society and world at large, but of course, not much can be done without destiny changing opportunities which would foster abundant greenitivity in the life of the average minds. I am a 400l student studying Physics and Education. You can view me as one of the average minds with a CGPA of 4.39/5.00, for whom all the days of his life, will be working for growth and advocating for equality and quality Education.
A chance to impact worldly!!! "

Millennium Fellowship Project: REDUCTION OF CARBON EMISSION

The normal proportion of Carbon dioxide (CO2) in air is between 0.03% and 0.04% yet, due to contribution of humans in the release of CO2, it is the leading cause of air pollution in the world. This gas takes the highest proportion of about 82% of the total GreenHouse Gas emission[1]. Many countries with the aim to be called developed, have traded industrialization for air pollution. Human activities which involve the combustion of fossil fuels such as gasoline, diesel and coal, for the sake of converting chemical energy from these, to electrical energy or mechanical energy is a leading cause. In situations of higher concentrations of CO2, the respiratory system of human lives is endangered, severe cases result in death. In Nigeria, the highest contributor to CO2 emission is the transportation sector[2]. The proportion of vehicles that ply the roads of Nigeria each day is 85% ICE vehicles, which make use of fossil fuels as driving mechanism. The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), has ranked Nigeria as Africa’s highest importer of used vehicles from the United States, and the third in the world, in its latest report[3]. Experts have warned that the export of millions of used vehicles to developing countries such as Nigeria is a major contributor to air pollution. This study aims to develop a software solution to significantly reduce the importation/manufaction of such vehicles by predicting CO2 emissions from them using a built machine learning model.

About the Millennium Fellow

Innocent Tochukwu Innocent was born in Nigeria, resides in Lagos and currently studying at Lagos State University. Right from my basic class schooling, I have always had passion for life on land and it's environs. I, in my own capacity have always contributed to ensure a sustainable and clean environment by engaging in volunteering services. I have always been an advocate of good and quality education. My recent engagement, which was this year, was on research and deployment of a prototype that encourages zero carbon emission machines in industries. I am very excited to be amongst the 2022 Millennium Fellows, I feel honored and very grateful. Up next to a great experience!
