The European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company (EADS) presented a full-size hybrid helicopter concept model and aviation biofuel made from algae at the June 8-13, 2010 ILA Berlin Airshow.
The patented diesel-hybrid system employs multiple diesel-electric motor generator units in combination with batteries and power electronics to control energy flows for optimal efficiency. The end result is a proprietary hybrid helicopter that produces up to 50 percent less emissions and has lower noise levels and improved safety features.
