I'm reading right now a paper related to the state of Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) and Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) and I saw:
BEVs produce no pollutants such as particulates, (...)
What is the difference between this form and the use of: BEVs don't produce pollutants such as particulates, (...)
As far as I know, It's very common to use the first form in papers or textbooks. Why? Is it about formality, rule of scientific papers or something related to grammar figures?
Thank you for your answers.
