As we continue to suffer from the growing issue on sources of fuel, here is another study that should offer some welcome thoughts. A study conducted over at India’s National Institute of Technology in Tiruchirappali showed that the use of Alumina Nanoparticles can improve the performance and combustion of biodiesel. Additionally, it helps reduce carbon emissions which should be something that can be green and fuel-saving.
The researchers are now testing other types of nanoparticles, including hollow carbon nanotubes, and investigating the effects of nano-additives to engine lubrication and cooling systems. Despite the positive results of the study, the researchers say the high cost of nanoparticle production and the risk of nanoparticles entering the human body are obstacles that must be overcome before the technology can be adopted on a wider scale.
Well at least you know that there is progress on one aspect of the need for fuel. Just a little bit more and we may yet get a great resolution for this area of concern.
