Airlines will fly with help from Algae, A new process for steel to be stronger by 7%


As per a news item from Bloomberg airlines will start using Algae fuel also called Bio fuel instead of the expensive jet fuel. That means airlines will be savings money from buying expensive jet fuel which costs around $131 a barrel. Bio fuel will costs around $50 (http://news.cnet.com/8301-11128_3-10188491-54.html)  presently and once the production and supply increases it may costs less. This in turn will reduce the cost of airline travel to people..

Steel news.

In another news a person found a new form of steel that is stronger by 7% than regular steel called Flash Bainite.  this new steel can be made thinner and carry the same load as more traditional steel–meaning cars and aircraft could be much lighter and retain their strength, which has huge eco-implications in terms of fuel efficiency. Another good news for airlines and car industry to save money. click to know more here  http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/06/110609173718.htm
