ABSTRACT
The article discusses the negative impact of nanoparticles from motor pollution, the global search for green fuels and emergence of pollution control technology. Motor vehicles contribute 65% of ozone-forming pollutants. The Clean Air Act of 1970 gave broad authority to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPOA) and led to the introduction of exhaust gas recirculation valves, catalytic converters and unleaded gasoline. Cars were equipped with three-way catalysts in 1980-1981 that converts carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons to carbon dioxide and water.
