AdBlue, to limit the pollution of diesel vehicles

The new anti-pollution standards are more and more demanding. They have pushed car manufacturers to look at the problem of reducing pollution and the need to take action to preserve our environment. It is from this ecological emergency that AdBlue was born. But what is it really about? Is this a really spectacular product [...]

nano-spike CO2 ethanol

Convert CO2 (+ water + electricity) into ethanol fuel by "nano-spike" catalysis!

Nano-Spike catalysis; Discovery of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory made a little ... by chance! The process makes it possible to obtain ethanol from CO2, electricity and water in the presence of a specific nano-catalyst called Nano-Spike. The reported return on electricity is 60 to 70%, which is acceptable provided renewable electricity is used (the process [...]

Lipo Lithium Battery

electric transport (Lipo) Heat VS (petrol): criteria for choosing a battery and comparative calculations

The performance of electric transport depends strongly on the quality of their batteries. It is currently the real Achilles heel that limits the development of electric propulsion, both in road transport, maritime and ... that air obviously. We present a quick state of the art Lithium-Polymer battery performance currently on the [...]

Solar hydrogen car

Solar or renewable hydrogen car: an invention of the future? No, it is already in the past! Hydrogen is in fashion but it is, most of the time, a vast technological trickery because, if the use of hydrogen is "clean" at the vehicle level (with a Fuel Cell but not a heat engine because there […]

List and amounts of bonus malus

Listing of new cars sold in France subject to Bonus or Malus. There is a very glaring imbalance between the cars enjoying a bonus and the one subject to a penalty. Econologically, buying a car is not a sustainable investment so we can understand this imbalance. Nevertheless the state has promised that the sum of the receipts [...]

Eco-friendly bonus

What is the principle of the ecological bonus when buying a car in France? Summary: the ecological bonus-malus consists, on the one hand, in "penalizing" the buyers of heavy and powerful vehicles emitting more carbon dioxide than the average and on the other hand in "advantaging" the consumers who buy less energy-consuming cars . One can nevertheless wonder about […]

Renault Vesta

Renault Vesta 2: the economical concept car of the 80s at less than 2L / 100km but never sold! Renault (like all the other big manufacturers) knows how to make ultra-economical cars for more than 20 years but does not market them, proof of this is the VESTA project which is a light car whose engine is […]

Low consumption cars

Low consumption cars: why? The aim of this section is to present different concepts of “econological” cars because although the concept of a private car is the opposite of the concept of econology, certain models and concepts are much more so than others. You will find on this section a brief presentation of projects, concept cars, prototypes, […]
