Airships have undergone little evolution Post-WWII and sadly, these were restricted to advertisements, which offered us a glimpse of them every now and then. However, pulling them out of this oblivion into the 21st century, E-Green Technologies successfully finished the inflation of the worlds’ largest airship Bullet 580 inside Garrett Coliseum, Montgomery, Alabama.
This is an amazingly clever design concept aimed at removing one of the biggest hurdles that stand in our way of applying vertical take-off and landing to commercial aircrafts. With his Airbus A350H airliner, one particular designer Victor Uribe has tried ridding VTOL aircrafts off their extremely inefficient and heavy, smaller payloads and greater fuel needs reputation
No need to worry anymore about ways to dispose off your electronic waste especially computers because now you can use it grow bio-fuel. Students at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have created Bio-Grow, an algae bio-reactor.
Delta2 an Australian aviation company is all set to take the aviation world by storm through its creation of worlds’ first biofuel-capable diesel helicopter. Graceville based aeronautical engineer Bill Whitney, has designed this very beautiful and stylish looking low cost helicopter for Australian farmers with large countryside landholdings and oodles of diesel to burn.
Man is relentlessly dabbling with technology in search for newer and cheaper bio-fuels to ensure a civilizational shift to alternative fuel resources that are environmentally friendly. One of the major reasons that prevents large scale use of bio-fuel is the complicated and time-consuming process involved in producing it.
The outlook for the bio-fuel market worldwide seems cheerfully optimistic with new ways to produce the eco-friendly fuel, regularly hitting the headlines. Several types of algae have been widely explored as a viable source for bio-fuel in the last few decades, however if this one becomes a success then we could soon have farmers growing microalgae ...
Coincidence apart, but what better occasion than the Earth Day for the world’s most well equipped military to try and reduce its carbon footprint and move closer towards getting a green makeover? In an effort to clean up its armed forces the US Navy will take the Hornet on a supersonic test flight using bio-fuel.
DARPA has a number of tough-to-believe projects going on at any moment of time, that leads to the agency often being called the Pentagon's mad science division. This time around, they are looking for an environmentally friendly energy source, or basically, using poop to power portable nuclear reactors.
The US Air Force is a gas guzzler that consumes 2.4 billion gallons of fuel annually. That number certainly isn't comforting, but the good part is that the Air Force has begun its move towards better, cleaner fuels. Recently, an A-10C Thunderbolt jet took to the air from the Elgin Air Force Base, while getting power from a plant based ...
Photosynthesis by plants is a simple, green way to generate loads of energy, and giving out precious oxygen in the process. Scientists have been working to create a system that would generate energy like plant leaves do, without any ill-effects on the environment. Precious little success has been achieved so for, and the Artificial Inorganic Leaf (AIL) is a step ...
