The EADS first algae-fueled airplane is quite the accomplishment. The European aircraft company recently announced that it's ready to unveil a plane that runs on biofuel made from algae. This is taking sustainability to quite another level, and I love it.

The thought of a plane running on algae alone is mind-boggling! If the state of the environment wasn't enough to convince you that the EADS' first algae-fueled plane is incredible, then maybe the fact that the algae fuel takes 1.5 liters less fuel per hour than normal planes will.
