Already in 2013, the founder of Triboron first met with Prof. Staffan Jacobson at the Ångström laboratory at Uppsala University. The meeting was within the scope of an Academia meet Industry event called AIM Day. A fruitful collaboration was initiated and this has continued until today. Research performed by Petra Olander, Elin Larsson and Jonas Andersson has resulted in a deepened knowledge about the friction behavior of Triboron products. As a result of our strong belief in the value of a deepened scientific understanding of the Triboron technology, our shareholders have agreed to finance a substantial part of the PhD project of Elin Larsson. We are truly looking forward to having the group as a research partner and to the scientific discussions that will follow.
The Swedish innovation Triboron is a patented, unique technology for reducing mechanical friction. Mixed with the fuel in a modern vehicle Triboron creates a sustainable fuel saving of between 3 and 5 percent. Our major scientific breakthrough is the ability to dissolve a low concentration of Boron into a clear, stable liquid. Triboron captures the full effect of Boron’s documented friction- reducing properties while also protecting mechanical parts from wear and tear. Triboron International AB is founded and governed by a group of leading Swedish industrialists and supported by world-class expertise in the fields of chemistry, combustion technology and energy production.
