What flies and spits fire at the same time? That’s right: airplanes. Aircraft are major emitters of greenhouse gasses and reducing these emissions poses a challenge to airlines, regulators, and manufacturers. How will Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer react to this […]
In 2005, Euglena Co. based in Tokyo, Japan succeeded to mass-produce euglena, microalgae, outside first time in the world. This tiny euglena has a huge potential to battle with one of the world's biggest challenge – climate change; it can be a food to nourish growing populations, and it can be a fuel to fly an airplane.
In the pursuit to reduce greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions, we developed efficient airplanes that use less fuel. Technology improved aerodynamics, enhanced engine performance and reduced planes’ weight. But we are still using the same fossil fuel we used since the inception of aviation. Can we change that?
