Dear MEL Topic Readers,
Airbus looks to the future with hydrogen planes
Greta Thunberg knows the easiest and surest way to reduce aviation’s greenhouse gas emissions. Don’t fly. Indeed. As the coronavirus pandemic grounded most of the passenger aircraft in the world, the sky is cleaner than any time in the past few decades. While the aviation and travel industries are hoping to fly passengers as soon as possible, environmental advocates are pushing the governments and aviation industry to promote a green recovery. Though it will take more than a decade, Airbus, an aerospace giant, came up with plans to bring about zero-emission aircraft. There are three designs, a turbofan, turboprop, and blended-wing body aircraft. All these models would burn liquid hydrogen to create electrical power. The concept sounds ideal but there are infrastructure and supply problems that need to be overcome, which seem to require governments and beyond-industry collaborations.
However, as zero-emission vehicles are on the rise on the ground, the same must happen in the air and on the water.
Enjoy reading the article and think when you’ll take a zero-emission flight and to where.
