The aviation industry is under pressure from multiple sources, including rising fuel prices and increased investigation of its aircraft’s environmental and quality-of-life effects. Scientists are continuously looking for new ways to reduce costs while increasing overall effectiveness, and the relatively new industry of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)—or drones—is no exception.
According to recent research, experimental plant-based jet fuel could enhance engine performance and efficacy, while dispensing with aromatics—the pollution-causing compounds seen in traditional fuels.
