Environmentally friendly engine ready to take off

August 23, 2010, 10:29 pm

Environmentalists have pointed their fingers at the aviation industry for the large amounts of fuel required by airplanes and helicopters to travel. Researchers have been working to make advancements that will make flying more eco-friendly.

Data published in the Environmental Health Perspectives shows that the amount of certain chemicals more than doubled between 1970s and 1993. They say that such chemicals can make it difficult for some people's lungs to function properly.

Recently, Axial Vector Energy Corp announced the creation of a high-efficiency aviation engine. The company says that their new engine is more efficient than previous models.

"The new MP2 cycle adds an efficiency gain of 12 percent in thermal efficiency that translates to longest time aloft per gallon in the industry," said AXVC's chief engineer Douglas Hahn. "In a conventional metallic engine, much of the energy released from the fuel must be dissipated as waste heat in order to prevent a meltdownof the metallic parts."

People can get a glimpse of the new technology at the AUVSI Unmanned Systems North America shows in Denver at the end of the month.ADNFCR-3158-ID-19929733-ADNFCR
