From algae-based aviation fuel to ground-based applications of solar technologies that power spacecraft, innovative designs by Boeing are creating a cleaner future. The Boeing approach to achieving higher performance involves the development of new products, while improving our current product lines at the same time.
Improved fuel consumption is at the core of our research-and-development efforts. Our biggest contribution as a company is designing airplanes that burn less fuel and produce a smaller carbon footprint.
We are researching cleaner energy sources, such as biofuels made from algae, salt water grasses, oilseeds and other feedstock, that do not compete with food crops for land or water. And we are developing advanced concepts for the future, including hydrogen- and solar-powered aircraft for our government customers.
