  • And the light weight of the carbon fiber helps reduce the fuel consumption.

  • When compare Boeing 787 to other models,

  • it can save fuel almost 20 percent for the same distance.

  • Not only it saves 20% on fuel consumption,

  • but it also reduces the emission of the Carbon Dioxide which is good for the environment.

  • Carbon Fiber is very durable.

  • However, since it is a composite material, in the next 30-40 years when we don’t use it anymore,

  • we don’t have to throw it away, we can still recycle it.

  • With the design of the aircraft, if you notice the back of the engine,

  • it looks pretty much like a saw tooth.

  • This is not only about the look or beauty of the aircraft

  • but it is also designed to absorb the noise coming from the engine.
