First flight algae powered aircraft

European aerospace giant EADS wil present  a hybrid aircraft which runs  100 percent on algae fuel.  It is a world premiere at the Berlin Air Show (ILA) that runs from June 9 to 13.

Algae, a slimy fast-growing and full of fat is quickly gaining ground as a potential. It has also potentially useful for its albility to gobble up carbon dioxyde, a greenhouse gas, while living happily in places not needed for goods.

EAD has high hopes for algae, said Jean Botti technical director. ”  We soon need an alternative to kerosene.  If 10 percent of our fleet is flying with biofuel,  we  would  be extremely happy.’
