3277Re: [nanotech] NanoCar: Nanotechnology in the automotive industry 2003 to 2015, state and developments
- Aug 7, 2003All Nanotypes:
There has been a significant breakout in the extremely slow rush to accept
alternate philosophies(sp?) and materials in commercial processes. The
latest has been the development of the "Green Tire" in which carbon black has
been replaced with an alternate "conventional micron size filler" in the
tread of the tire. This has significantly reduced the rolling resistance.
In terms of the USA measurements, this has improved miles per gallon by at
least 10. This is now being recognized in those countries in which the price
of gasoline is much higher than in the USA.
Is this a consideration for the use of nanosize fillers?
