Liquid hydrogen plane paves way for zero emission flight

07 December 2021/Categories: CILT, Industry News, Aviation, Net-Zero


Passengers could one day fly to the other side of the world with zero carbon emissions and just one refuelling stop, thanks to government-funded technology. 

 

The concept aircraft was unveiled by the Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI) ahead of the fourth meeting of the Jet Zero Council, which is chaired by the Transport Secretary.

 

The FlyZero project, led by the ATI and funded by the government, has developed a concept for a midsize aircraft powered by liquid hydrogen. 

 

It is capable of flying 279 passengers halfway around the world without a stop or anywhere in the world with just one stop to refuel.

 

Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said: “As we build back greener, it’s crucial that we place sustainability at the heart of the aviation industry’s recovery from COVID-19.

 

“This pioneering design for a liquid hydrogen powered aircraft, led by a British organisation, brings us one step closer to a future where people can continue to travel and connect but without the carbon footprint.”
