Concept Zero-Emission Jet Achieving 3,125MPH

The European Aeronautic Defense and Space Company (EADS) has proposed a zero-emission Hypersonic Transportation aircraft that may turn flights into green-modes of transportation. The concept jet runs on a biofuel, seaweed, and will be able to achieve speeds above the atmoshpere, at 3,125 miles per hour.

The Zero Emission High Speed Transport (ZEHST) will make the current Concorde obsolete, and best of all, won’t harm our Earth anymore than all the cars we have on the road, at present.

Virgin Airlines Drops $1.4B On Fuel-Efficient Engines

Modern day aircrafts currently run on fossil fuels that both pollute the environment, and are a limited natural resource (AKA, it cannot be recreated or made). Thankfully, Virgin Airlines is stepping up to the plate by spending $1.4 billion on ultra fuel-efficient engines.

Rather than adopting biofuel technology, which is still at an infant age, Virgin Airlines is instead investing in ultra fuel-efficient aircraft. The engines are designed by CFM International and are touted to save $1.6 million in fuel costs each year, per plane.
