First hypersonic passenger jet releases water instead of CO2

Blueprints for Zero Emission Hypersonic Transportation (ZEHST) were released in the Paris Air Show on June 20, 2011. This mechanical feat is to be virtually pollution-free and is able to carry about 100 passengers at a speed more than 3,125 mph i.e. almost four times the speed of sound. The jet will use three sets of engines to accomplish this speed. And most of all it will be powered by seaweeds or a composition of hydrogen and oxygen. The only emission this jet will release is water.
