Perturbed with the import costs of crude oil, President APJ Abdul Kalam redefined the research outlook for the automotive industry on Wednesday. Speaking at the Symposium of International Automotive Technology (SIAT) 2007 at the Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI), President Kalam stressed on developing alternative fuels for automobiles.
He said that the industry should focus on overcoming the emissions of nitrogen dioxide and suspended matter from the diesel engines. "Presently, these shortcomings should be filled up by using advanced combustion technologies," he said. Citing an example of Iceland where buses are run on hydrogen, Kalam said that the automotive engineers need to look for alternate fuels in hydrogen and Carbon NanoTube (CNT) —an allotrope of carbon.
