IS THIS THE FUTURE OF FLYING?

Airbus has just launched a revolutionary project called AIRBUS ZEROe, aiming to bring hydrogen-powered zero emission arcrafts into service by 2035.

Zero emission flying could be getting closer. In September 2020, Airbus has announced new plans for its AIRBUS ZEROe project with the ambitious and incredibly exciting prospect of bringing zero emission jets into commercial service by 2035.


The company will be busy developing hydrogen-powered prototype aircrafts in the next five years, to then decide whether a viable solution exist. If so, they will push the button on a history-making series of investments to start production toward the end of the decade, potentially revolutionising the aviation industry.


Although the project is currently the most promising of its kind, it is not without obstacles. Unlike fossil fuels, using hydrogen does not result in any emission other than water vapor, provided its production process is powered by renewable energy.


The next big issue is how to store the hydrogen in the plane. This requires more space than conventional kerosene and so it will need to be integrated within the body of the plane.


Things may be moving quickly in the coming years: with governments pushing for net zero and hydrogen becoming mainstream, production prices would inevitably fall. Airbus is hoping that in 15 years’ time the infrastructures will be more widely spread, specifically airports, which will need to be able to refuel the new planes, making this a tempting new opportunity for airlines globally.
