Air planes are integral for both national and international transport but they can cause substantial amount of air pollution. Air planes like every other vehicle require fuel. No air plane can fly without stopping for refueling now and then. Surprisingly an American firm has created an air plane model that promises to fly without any fuel for 5 years non-stop. This air plane does not need fuel because it will be powered by solar energy. The series of solar powered air planes have been named the Solara series. These special aircrafts have not been made for just carrying passengers around. They can carry telecom and atmospheric sensors. As they can [...]
Auto makers all around the world are trying hard to develop and manufacture stable green cars and vehicles that will not pollute the environment.

Research is going on regarding this matter and scientists are striving hard to build eco-friendly vehicles for company transportation to make this world a greener and [...]
Vehicle pollution contributes directly to the global environment pollution. The pollutants thrown into the air by vehicles in general include carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, un-burnt hydrocarbons and oxides of nitrogen. These elements can cause severe health damage when breathed in and deteriorates the quality of air. Eco-friendly vehicles can solve the problem of air pollution. Eco-conscious auto enthusiasts and engineers have started working on different vehicle models that will be eco-friendly in nature. They are putting a lot of stress on the fuel and how the vehicle’s motor uses the fuel. In this article you will get information about five very interesting and weirdly eco-friendly vehicles.
