Could liquified natural-gas fuel and hybrid-electric propulsion be the future of aviation?

Boeing’s 2035-timeframe Sugar Freeze combines cryogenic LNG fuel with advanced turbofans and BLI drag-reducing aft thruster.

What technologies could be available for an airliner entering service in 2045 that would not be ready in time for aircraft designed to be fielded in 2030? That is the question NASA asked when it awarded Boeing a year-long extension to its concept studies for «N+3»-generation airliners that could be flying in 2030-35.

In NASA’s vision, N+3 is three generations on from today’s 737 and 777. Boeing’s «N+4» study, the final results

Ukraine in the top 30privlekatelnyh countries for the development of alternative energy

For three months, our country has moved from 30 th to 29 th position in the world ranking of the most attractive in terms of investment in renewable energy, which publishes a quarterly company Ernst &Young.

Ukraine, ranked first in the ranking in 2011, is now ahead of European countries such as Bulgaria, Hungary, Czech Republic, Austria, Finland and other countries. In addition, our country is still the only representative of the CIS and the former Soviet Union in the rankings.

Moreover, the so-called solar index Ukraine is even higher 21-th place. This suggests that a particularly attractive

Kazakhstan refuses to clean energy Facts

Kazakhstan, which has vast oil reserves, recently officially adopted several programs for the implementation of technologies for alternative sources of energy. But after that, after VII Eurasian Forum Kazenergo leaked allegations that the country will continue to develop and mass-produce its natural field for economic purposes. To "green" energy will be given only 10%.

The forum participants commented his decision by saying that the process of clean and renewable energy is too expensive for their country compared with the traditional one. Slant on alternative energy is planned after the new technologies become

Developed the technology and equipment to produce energy from a low-calorie raw materials

The Institute of Problems of Chemical Physics, Russian Academy of Sciences on the results of basic research superadiabatic filtration combustion regimes developed the technology and equipment for the processing of low-calorie raw materials into electrical energy and valuable hydrocarbon products. The technology is designed for the processing of low-grade fossil fuels, alternative fuels, including biofuels, industrial, and municipal waste.

The distinctive features of technology are: — High energy gasification efficiency (up to 95%); — The modular design of the process, which allows the device to use a different energy, a variety of related technologies, integrated into the existing
