Electric cars are called the future of the automotive industry as they can save our planet’s environment. However, a team of Belgian and Dutch scientists have challenged this statement by creating clean diesel fuel.
Researchers from Leuven and Utrecht Universities have developed a technology for the production of environmentally friendly diesel fuel. The technology is cheap and easily scalable.
The essence of diesel fuel production lies in the acceleration of chemical reactions with oil. The main innovation proposed by the researchers is to place reaction catalysts closer to each other (at a distance of just a few nanometers), which will make the resulting fuel much cleaner than regular fuel and suitable for any diesel vehicle.
The innovation has already been tested in practice: emission levels have indeed greatly decreased. Scientists believe that it will take 10 years to implement the technology globally. However, this is not something that can prevent us from hoping that this goal will be achieved earlier.
