To save car engine from overheating will help cacti
Scientists have discovered an unusual method of increasing fuel efficiency for cars.
Researchers from Australia came to the conclusion that the special membrane which contains in the skin of the cactus can be used when creating and repairing internal combustion engines.
These prickly plants are adapted to high temperatures due to the fact that with a special pore on the surface is the absorption of moisture and carbon dioxide in the dark. Day, these pores are narrowed and do not allow moisture and other nutrients to go outside and evaporate. This technology can be taken into account in the design of automobile engines. By applying the membrane from the peel of cactus, it would be possible to control the circulation of ions and moisture, and thus protect the unit from excessive heat.
In addition, the researchers consider their discovery as the basis for the creation of alternative types of motor fuel.
