Abstract

Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are of increasing concern due to their impacts on the global warming. Many ongoing researches in this area are focusing on investigating solutions to reduce GHG emissions and their detrimental impacts to human and environment. This paper discusses the strategies proposed by Automotive Research Group and Energy Technologies Research Group under the faculty to promote the sustainability and green campus concept in Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia. Steps being proposed include the application of conventional and innovative technologies such as: fuel-injection retrofitting-kit, mono-gas retrofitting-kit, waste heat recovery system and usage of biodiesel for diesel fuelled vehicles. With these strategies, the groups expected that reduction in emission footprint can be achieved, while at the same time, promoting green technologies and green campus concept to the university.
