Abstract

Growing concern of carbon dioxide emissions, greenhouse effects and rapid depletion of fossil fuels raise the necessity to produce and adopt new eco-friendly sustainable alternatives to the internal combustion engine driven vehicles. For this reason, in the last decade, electric vehicles have become in some way widespread, principally because of their negligible flue gas emissions and lesser reliance on oil. Although electric cars were introduced many years ago, agriculture electric vehicles have recently gained attention. The world of agriculture has changed, small-specialized farm utility vehicles are now used for a specific purpose, and in several cases, they have an electric engine. In our research, we focused on the design and preparation of a prototype the variable, multifunctional ecological electric loader, which would be dimensionally adapted to the needs of use in greenhouse, interior growing halls, as a result of research by students of innovative dual technical education with effective support of their teachers. The result of our research was the design and construction of a prototype of a smaller electric loader, which meets demanding quality parameters (performance) and environmental attributes (reduced noise and almost zero emissions) for work in greenhouses.
