Start: 01-10-2007  /  End: 31-03-2009

This project proposes a novel concept of using nanofuels, pure metal nanoparticles (dry-fuel) or suspensions of nanoparticles in a liquid fuel (wet-fuel), as a future energy vector. The concept comprises three elements: production, utilization and regeneration of nanofuels. This project develops a prototype reciprocating…
