  • Labelled Solution
Label Date April 3, 2020
From South Korea
Maturity stage TRL 6 - Prototype testing 1:1 in lab

Governments around the world are putting pressure on engine manufacturers to reduce emissions and protect air quality. In response, production of electric vehicles has increased, increasing the need for harmful electric generators. Today, few solutions exist to reduce CO2 emissions efficiently and at a lower cost. To meet this need, Tuireann has invented the nanofluid T1: a clever combination of nanoparticle-based fuel additives and water injection that maintains the benefits of both technologies, while eliminating the side effects. By using water as protection around the nanoparticles, T1 reduces fuel consumption, CO, CO2, NOx and soot, while being cost-effective and safe. Highly versatile, this solution can be adapted to different sectors and applications such as heavy-duty trucks, automobile, airline, freight, and marine industry.

The Environmental Benefits

  • Reduces 8% to 10% CO2 emissions from engines
  • Energy savings generated by 1 litre of T1: 800 Kwh

The Financial Benefits

  • Payback time reached under 6 monts for car users and 1 month for truck users
  • Average fuel savings of 10% for gasoline 10% and 8% for diesel
