T1 Nanofluid for Emission Reduction - Fueling diesel engines with nanoparticles

Tuireann's solution offers highly cost-efficient and safe energetic nanofluid solutions to meet CO2 emissions targets thanks to its innovative combination of technology.

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.
