Airbus has achieved a green aviation first as an H225 made the first-ever helicopter flight with both of its Safran Makila 2 engines running on 100 percent Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), which is usually derived from biomass, including waste fat, oil, and grease.Continue ReadingCategory: Aircraft, TransportTags: Airbus, Helicopters, Biofuel
Having introduced a series of battery-electric trucks over the past few years, Volvo Trucks is now expanding on its vision of a cleaner trucking future with a foray into hydrogen fuel cell powertrains. The company announced this week that it has begun putting these next-generation big rigs through their paces, with a view to introducing them to the market later this decade.Continue ReadingCategor
This modular motorcycle is built to tackle just about anything, with torquey electric motors driving huge balloon tires at the front and rear. It can cross water in amphibious mode, and handle serious distances with a range-extending generator and two huge fuel tanks in the wheel rims.Continue ReadingCategory: Motorcycles, TransportTags: 2WD, Electric Motorcycles, Modular, Utility vehicles, Dirt
Powering medical implants can be tricky, but tapping into the body’s own fuel source could keep them going long-term. A new design for a tiny fuel cell converts glucose into electricity to power implants more efficiently than any other so far.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Energy, Implant, Fuel Cell, Glucose, MIT, Technical University Munich
A revolutionary cryogenic tank design promises to radically boost the range of hydrogen-powered aircraft – to the point where clean, fuel-cell airliners could fly up to four times farther than comparable planes running on today's dirty jet fuel.Continue ReadingCategory: Aircraft, TransportTags: Hydrogen Aviation, HyPoint, Climate Solutions: Aviation, Hydrogen-powered, Electric Aircraft
Zero-emissions airliners are still a long way off, but Lufthansa and BASF have developed a way to improve things right now. AeroShark is an adhesive riblet film that immediately reduces fuel consumption, and therefore emissions, from any aircraft.Continue ReadingCategory: Aircraft, TransportTags: Aerodynamics, Airlines, Lufthansa, Biomimicry, Sharks, Fuel efficiency, New Atlas Audio
SCG’s swappable solution for hydrogen-powered truck   two weeks ago scuderia cameron glickenhaus (SCG) released images of a hydrogen fuel cell-powered off-road vehicle to race the baja 1000. over the weekend, the american car manufacturer has unveiled more details of how the hydrogen truck will be refueled. in the recent press release, jim glickenhaus said […] The post glickenhau
Trying to race 1,200 miles (1,931 km) of notoriously harsh, prickly desert is difficult in itself. Developing a first-of-its-kind zero-emissions fuel cell off-roader to complete the task is more difficult still. Skipping common compressed-gas hydrogen in favor of cryogenic liquid hydrogen so bleeding edge you can't even source it for testing, let alone pump it into your 4x4 ... well, that's just
The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) hasn't even finished unfurling itself after its December 25 launch and NASA says that its mission could already be extended beyond 10 years thanks to excess fuel for its onboard thrusters.Continue ReadingCategory: Space, ScienceTags: NASA, James Webb Space Telescope, ESA, New Atlas Audio
Electric vehicles were a hot topic this year amid growing concern about the climate impact of petrol and diesel engines. For our review of 2021 Dezeen rounds up 10 non-fossil-fueled vehicles, including a coupe designed by Virgil Abloh and an electric car by Heatherwick Studio.
