News: Sea Water to Fuel – Technology

US militaryAs the threats to America increase and the budget of other countries military increase, our government has taken steps to make sure that America is still one of the toughest military in the World.  Our military has taken steps to invest in some new futuristic weapons but also improving technology.

We have all seen that the US Navy has installed it’s first laser on a warship and has also been the first in the world to develop a Stealth Warship. Other might know that the US army has been putting heavy investment into an “Ironman” like suit. But one thing that was kept under wraps is the new technology that the US Navy has developed that will turn sea water into fuel for its boats. This is a game changer.  According to the Dailymail.UK the ultimate goal is to eventually get away from the dependence on oil altogether, which would also mean the navy is no longer hostage to potential shortages of oil or fluctuations in its cost.

The predicted cost of jet fuel using these technologies is in the range of $3-$6 per gallon, and with sufficient funding and partnerships, this approach could be commercially viable within the next seven to ten years.

See this new technology in use in the video below.
