For 15 years, given the urgency of reducing carbon emissions under the Paris Climate Agreement, as may seem like a long time for research and development, processing and storage of “clean hydrogen” requires the resolution of a number of complex technical challenges. Three early designs, which the company is studying, would be based on hydrogen and oxygen and would have no carbon emissions. But that doesn`t mean they won`t affect the climate at all. However, environmental activists say time is running out to keep global temperatures above pre-industrial levels in the Paris Agreement`s commitment of 1.5 to 2 degrees Celsius. You say that measures should be taken to reduce the number of flights made, while new technologies are being developed to reduce CO2 emissions from air transport. Our work in electric flight laid the foundation for our future emission-free commercial aircraft, ZEROE. We are now looking at a variety of hybrid electric options and hydrogen technology. Our approach is not only ambitious, but rather a seismic shift for our sector. Airbus is focusing, among other market-based measures, on comprehensive and binding compensation programmes to limit CO2 emissions from the aviation industry. We support ICAO as the appropriate body to implement global market-based measures for the aviation industry.
“The integration of environmental requirements as a precondition for the European Commission`s approval of support packages for the aviation sector could have negative consequences for credit, depending on national specificities in public support plans,” Stanislas Duquesnoy, senior vice-president of the credit rating agency, wrote in the report. “If demand is going to support them,” Simpson said of the hydrogen commercial aircraft, “we think they will be profitable and they will be very clean.” Fuel storage is a major technical hurdle for hydrogen-fuel aircraft. Hydrogen gas would weigh less than conventional fuels with the same amount of energy, but would take up more space, Kroo said. “There will be kerosene. in service for a long, long time,” she said. Nevertheless, it is convinced that green hydrogen fuels will be available in the not too distant future and that the engines they operate will eventually be developed. Airbus has already made public strides in carbon-free flight, starting with a small electric aircraft introduced in 2010. The company`s main competitor, Boeing, tested a small hydrogen-powered aircraft in 2008 — the first manned flight of its kind — and tested a hydrogen drone in 2012, but announced no plans for hydrogen-powered passenger flights. The larger designs could accommodate 200 passengers and have a range of 2000 nautical miles, while the turboprop would offer 120 seats and have a range of 1000 miles.
They would burn hydrogen and oxygen and get extra energy from hydrogen-oxygen fuel cells — devices that, instead of burning the elements, combine them to produce electricity, like a battery that, instead of being charged, is filled with the elements that react to produce electricity. . . .
