Imagine a "magic additive", which when added to engine oil, increases the fuel efficiency of your car by 35 to 50 per cent and cuts down on carbon emission by 90 per cent. Such an additive has already been successfully tested by Jay Narayan, a professor at the Department of Material Science and Engineering and director of the NSF Centre for Advanced Materials and Smart Structures at USA's North Carolina University.
Calling the additive a perfect solution for the rising pollution in metros, Narayan said the formulation, based on nanotechnology, is waiting for a patent at the moment and will be launched in the American, Indian and Chinese markets within a year. Narayan is on a three-day visit to the IIT-K for the international conference on Metals and Alloys- Metallo 2007.
