Extremely lightweight hydrogen tanks could quadruple the range of passenger airliners

Chris Young writes in Interesting Engineering about HyPoint hydrogen fuel.

The C3 Take
  • California-based HyPoint is developing a lightweight cryogenic tank design that could massively increase the range of hydrogen-powered aircrafts.
  • If a traditional airplane were retrofitted with HyPoint’s hydrogen technology, the plane would be able to travel four times as far while emitting zero emissions.
  • While the system still has to be tested further, HyPoint’s innovation could be key to reducing aviation sector emissions.

“HyPoint’s technology is extremely lightweight compared with traditional fuel cells and it could allow airliners to fly up to four times farther than traditional passenger aircraft.”
