Researchers Create Eco-Friendly Drones Made of Plant Fibers

Drones already have tremendous potential to help reduce carbon emissions by replacing cars and trucks to deliver small packages or emergency supplies. Now, a team of researchers in Malaysia are exploring ways to make small UAS even more eco-friendly by building drones from pineapple leaves. “The most important thing of this particular design is we are using agricultural waste, which is we are transforming the leaf of the pineapple fiber into a fiber,” explained professor Mohamed Thariq Hameed Sultan of Malaysia’s Putra University in a recent interview with Reuters. The fiber is lightweight yet durable enough to be used for aerospace applications, including creating biodegradable parts for bantam drones.
