Airbus Hopes to Be Flying Hydrogen-Powered Jetliners With Zero Carbon Emissions by 2035

As Leto Sapunar of InsideClimate News writes, Airbus has set a 2035 target goal to start flying hydrogen-powered jets

The C3 Take

  • Although no air travel will ever truly emit zero carbon, Airbus is looking to lower its carbon footprint with investments into hydrogen energy.
  • In order for hydrogen energy to be feasible for airplanes, large amounts of research and development must occur.
  • Lowering the carbon footprint of the aerospace industry will be important, as air travel accounted for 2% of global emissions in 2018.
  • By creating a demand for hydrogen energy Airbus is hoping to advance the energy source.

“Over the next five years, Airbus will do intensive research and development for its hydrogen concepts, Simpson said. They presented preliminary designs in an announcement last month: one for a passenger jet and another for a smaller capacity ‘turboprop’ plane driven by a turbine combined with a propeller.”
