AIRSHIPS - Aircraft Engines That Use Less Fuel & Can Last Three Times As Long Via New Nanoparticle Coating

The service life of aircraft engines can be greatly increased, by up to 300%, through the use of a nanoparticle coating, according to new research from University West in Sweden.This nanoparticle coating also allows the temperature within the engine to be raised, which would increase fuel efficiency — resulting in decreased fuel use, and reduced emissions. The new technology is also considerably cheaper than current conventional ones.The ne ...
