WHAT IS KARBONOL?
It is a method of producing highly efficient, enriched fuel from tar in cigarette butts.
WHAT PROBLEM IS THE PRODUCT SOLVING?
When I was walking down the street, I was caught by the cigarette butts on the floor when I went to school. Now it was such a situation that the butts became the vegetation of the asphalt. When I researched how much Izmir is harmful to the environment, I realized that plastic materials such as arsenic, cadmium, formaldehyde, turpentine and heavy metals contaminate the soil and water. However, these poisonous substances while eating, drinking water indirectly through the body of people who do not smoke. When I researched to find out how big the size of Izmir pollution is, I learned that according to the official data of TAPDK (Tobacco and Alcohol Market Supervision Agency), 17 million packs, 340 million cigarettes were smoked per day in our country. After learning this information, butts started to bother me. With the carbonol, the cost of collecting butts has now turned into profit, the foundations of a cheaper fuel for our people have been laid, and the damage caused by butts to nature has been reduced to almost zero.

WHERE CAN WE USE?
can be used in gasoline powered internal combustion engines, electricity production, and in the field of industry requiring fuel. In short, it is a mixture used in all of the energy fields required for our lives.
First, I've drawn up my experiment scheme. I asked my school to use the laboratory and a few of my friends at the university to use the diffusion machine. My school refused, and my friends could not help because i was a student. I was alone in this. So I made a minimum list of the materials I needed and bought materials from the labs in Eminönü and finished my experiments in the basement of my house.
