Infographic: Achieving Net-Zero Flight with Hydrogen
Aircraft manufacturers and airlines working toward net-zero emissions are developing electric-powered aircraft. Hydrogen may take more time, but Airbus is developing two hydrogen propulsion systems.
A number of electric-powered aircraft are close to commercial operations as airlines and manufacturers work to achieve zero-emissions goals. That is not the only option, though. European aircraft manufacturer Airbus is the largest to also take a hard look at hydrogen-fueled planes. The firm is developing two options: a hydrogen propulsion system using a combustion engine, as well as a hydrogen-powered fuel cell engine.
