Drones could significantly reduce carbon emission

| |

A new report published by Inmarsat and Cranfield University examined and compared the CO2 emissions emitted by UAVs and small light commercial vehicles (LCVs).

The study concluded that with the use of drones the logistics industry could significantly reduce its carbon emission rates. The report found that an LCV delivering ten packages per eight-hour shift over a five kilometres range, generates 3,394 grams of CO2 per 24 hours, meanwhile, a large-sized UAV with a 50 kilograms load generates 1,800 grams of emissions per 24 hours.
