If researchers are successful, the cost of fuel will decrease dramatically, and it will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Implications - I'm happy that we live in a day and age where scientists, companies and non-profit organizations alike are constantly searching for ways to make it easier for the public to improve how we the planet.
