Statement of the Problem
A. General problem:
this study will be conducted to determine the potential of Bamboo as an activated carbon muffler filter. Specifically it aims to answer the following questions:

1. What would be the duration of transforming the Bamboo stems to be activated carbon? 2. In which experimental set up shows the possible result that the bamboo has a content of activated carbon 3. What are the benefits and uses of the possible outcome of the research? 4. Is there a difference between the experimental setup and the control setup?

Statement of Hypotheses
1.The Bamboo can be transformed into fiber to be an activated carbon in a short duration 2.There is no difference between the effect of the different treatments for reducing carbon dioxide. 3.There is no significant difference between the effect of the alternative carbon muffler filter made from Bamboo and commercial.

Background of the study
Estimates showed there were nearly 4,968 premature deaths each year in Manila due to respiratory and cardiovascular diseases from exposure to poor air quality, according to the Philippine Environment Monitor, a joint report of the World Bank and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Vehicle numbers are forecast to grow rapidly in the Philippines in the next 25 years. By 2035, the vehicle population is estimated to reach 34.6 million vehicles; this is an increase of more than 500% compared to the number of vehicles in 2005 of 5.5 million. Motorcycles and tricycles will continue to become an important source of air pollution in the future; they are estimated to comprise...
