    A Turkish technology firm stated on Monday that its boron products might help the reduce the size of the hole in the ozone layer.

    "The products manufactured using boron minerals decrease the amount of exhaust gas released by motor vehicles by 15 percent," Mehmet Can Arvas, general manager of NNT Nano Teknoloji A.S., said. "If our company's boron products are used in vehicles all over the world, the hole in the ozone layer will narrow in 20 years."

    He said that the world-wide known technical supervision authority TUV and the German research institute BAM approved and registered the company's products as well.

    "Boron minerals will play a key role in the preservation of human health. Turkish technology is eager to save the world," Arvas also said. Boron, a semi-metallic element, exhibits some properties of metal as well as of non-metal.
           
    Turkey has almost 72 percent of the world's boron potential and boron reserves.
           
    The importance of boron --widely used in industries ranging from detergent industry to glass industry-- will increase as hydrogen fuelled motor vehicles are introduced.
