Researchers are racing to develop sustainable lubricants made from plants, but there’s one big stumbling block: friction. Bio-based lubricants that are less effective than petroleum would result in more friction, meaning more wear and tear along with lower fuel efficiency and generally higher emissions. Enter the new Superhard and Slick Coating, which just won an award from R&D Magazine as one of the top innovations of the year.
