Hydrogenase - Eco-Friendly Airship Powered by Seaweed


Vincent Callebaut, a talented architect from Belgium, designed a futuristic transport system that features airships powered by seaweed.

Such revolutionary mean of transportation will be 100 percent self-sufficient and will emit zero greenhouse gasses. It is worth mentioning that the project of the Belgian designer is entitled Hydrogenase.

Callebaut was highly inspired by nature and its shapes, which explains the design of his 400-meters high huge airship that can fly at an average height of 2,000 meters.

The air vessel is able to carry cargo weighting up to 200 tons, while flying at an average speed of 175 km/h. The ship will reside in the center of a floating farm of seaweeds, being refilled with bio-hydrogen. According to Dezeen the seaweed farm that produce biofuel will appear in 2030.
