We already introduced our new app called Vapour to the community in our recent article, and gave insights about this Carbon Footprint Accounting System.
Vapour app built to fight for a cleaner environment and help to ensure a greener future by reducing the carbon dioxide emissions into the air.
What is the meaning of ‘Vapour’?
When a substance turns from a solid or liquid into a gas, the process is called vaporization. Vapour or Vapor is a mass of very small drops of liquid in the air or refers to a gas-phase material that normally exists as a liquid or solid under a given set of conditions. A good synonym for vapour is gas.
Anyone can use this Vapour app by creating an account on it, and this account’s identity is integrated with Hydro ID.
[Note: This app is still in beta stage, so everything included in the app is not complete, some features are still in development. Application not available yet on Play Store, we applied for Play Store listing, so it will be live for the general public in 2 weeks. In the meantime the testers chosen by the community will be using the app.]
