Hydrogen fuel tanks made from chicken feathers


This is actually a big deal, because the special qualities of heated chicken feathers make them perfect nanotubes for storing hydrogen, as in fuel cell car storage tanks, and the price is way cheap too.

In addition to hydrogen storage, the new method could turn chicken feather fibers into a number of other eco-products like hurricane resistant roofing, lightweight car parts, as well as the aforementioned bio-based computer circuit boards.

Chicken feathers are also being used to make egg boxes (!) and fabrics.
