India has 1.2 billion people, more and more of whom own a car. NTNU and Hydro will help with the development of a modern sustainable Indian automotive industry through the use of aluminium and other light metals. Aluminium in a car costs more than steel, but leads to lower energy consumption, CO2 emissions and improved air quality. During the “India 2011” festival, researchers from NTNU and from India met with representatives from Hydro and leaders from the Indian car giant Tata Motors to discuss future cooperative efforts.
