Researchers at the Eindhoven University of Technology (EUT) may be on the brink of discovering a breakthrough that will lead to reduced pollution and cleaner air for all. According to the EUT, a roadway made of concrete blended with titanium dioxide can effectively remove up to 45 percent of the nitrogen oxides that it comes in contact with. The titanium dioxide, a photocatalytic material, captures airborne nitrogen oxides and, with the aid of the sun, converts it to nitrates that are harmlessly

British Columbia-based NxtGen has recieved $5.5 million in funding from the Government of Canada, EnCana Corporation and Sustainable Development Technology Canada that will allow them to proceed with a field testing program of their diesel aftertreatment system. The system is designed to be either retrofitted to existing diesel engines or built into new models. The key is a syngas generator that uses exhaust gases and diesel fuel to produce a mixture of hydrogen and carbon monoxide. A lean NOx t
