Bottleneck Technology anticipates 20% reduction in aviation emissions

The aviation industry may breath a sigh of relief as bottleneck technology comes to its rescue. Bombarding a plane’s wings with numerous tiny holes is supposed to reduce mid-flight drag and flatten the ever-rising carbon-emissions by a substantial 20%. Dr. Duncan Lockerby from the University of Warwick leads the project that encourages eco-lovers with some commendable initial footings.

Based on the Helmholtz resonance principle, the technology suffices ample reduction in fuel bills, thanks to the sterling innovation that allows limiting the drag without actually interfering with the structural technicalities of the airliner. Simon Crook, senior manager for aerospace and defense at the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), impressed with the modernization, is hopeful enough to put the new wings on trial in 2012.
