Hydrogen-Powered Aircraft: The Future of Clean Energy in Aerospace?

Here’s a post from WHA International that speaks the following:

  • Engineers have used hydrogen in rocket fuel and hydrogen fuel cells since the early years of space exploration.
  • Hydrogen has a higher specific impulse, burns cleaner, and has quick refueling potential, making it an attractive clean energy option for new aerospace application.
  • Challenges to using hydrogen in aerospace include unique safety considerations, large-scale infrastructure changes, and public perception due to historical incidents

Interestingly, we have some other posts related to this content:

  1. Applications Of Hydrogen Fuel In Aviation Industry:
    • Highlights the potential of green hydrogen in reducing aviation’s carbon footprint, emphasizing its high specific impulse and energy density. Airbus views it as central to aviation decarbonization by 2035.
  2. Carbon Free Hydrogen Powered Airplanes: Universal Hydrogen and Japanese Companies Team Up:
    • Discusses a collaborative effort to explore hydrogen-powered aircraft, focusing on decarbonization, sustainability, and overcoming challenges in development and infrastructure.
  3. Hydrogen And Sustainable Aviation Fuel For Air Travel – Decarbonization:
    • Examines the aviation industry’s efforts to decarbonize through sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and hydrogen, highlighting challenges in storage and infrastructure for hydrogen’s use in short flights and drones.
