In a couple of decades, you will see designers, researchers and architects pressing hard on eco-responsible transportation. With pollution elevating to a frightening level, they will be inspired to think out of the box and will design sustainably self-sufficient modes of transport – something like the one in the above image. Though the exposé, i.e. the Hydrogenase: Bio-Hydrogen airship, may make one question its incomprehensible technicalities, Vincent Callebaut, the Belgian designer believes it to be a sustainable mode of transportation that will power itself with seaweed. Definitely, he is thinking ahead of his times!
Mimicking nature to the fullest, the bio-hydrogen airship will power itself with the carbon dioxide generated by the algae farm or a farm with seaweeds. The fully energy-efficient, vertical aircraft will be a safe haven for those affected with natural catastrophes. The state-of-the-art biofuel-powered airship will fly 2,000 meters above the sea level.
With a weight-carrying capacity of 200 tons, the airship will fling certain tenets of eco-transportation as it saunters along its way. It will dedicate itself “to humanitarian missions, rescue operations, installation of platforms for scientific studies, and of course to air freight.” Moreover, it will complement entertainment, eco-tourism, hotel, human transports, air media coverage and territorial waters surveillance too.
