Dutch researchers 'invent greener fuel'

A Dutch university comes up with what it says is a cleaner form of the fuel, that could cut emissions by half.

    Researchers in the Netherlands say they have invented a much more environment friendly alternative to diesel fuel.

    The new fuel, Cyclox, could cut overall emissions by half by reducing fumes, according to tests conducted by the Eindhoven Technical University.

    With the World Health Organisation recently highlighting the hazards of diesel exhaust, the invention may be a cleaner, greener option.
