For this Zero Emission Day, Airbus is unveiling three new aircraft prototypes, codenamed “ZEROe” for zero emission. With the goal of traveling by 2035 in a plane that generates only water vapor.
Since a while now, the impact of aircraft on the environment has been the subject of many debates.
The combustion of kerosene in jet engines releases carbon dioxide (CO2), which accumulates in the atmosphere and contributes to the greenhouse effect, thus aggravating global warming.
The CEO of Airbus hopes that hydrogen will play a more significant role in airports. On the 8th of September, the French government presented its plan to develop a decarbonated hydrogen industry in France.
For this recovery plan due to the Covid-19 crisis, Guillaume Faury (CEO of Airbus) tells us that within the next 15 years we will be able to fly without pollution, an ambitious project and a project announced at several tens of billions of euros.
The Airbus case :
Defined by many as one of the most industrial successful company in Europe, Airbus, the aerospace giant, has made his name in this field, constantly innovating its technologies. From centralized electrical flight to bi-pilotes flying.
At the Salon du Bourget in June the CEO of Airbus presented us his greener and futuristic vision. Today they annouced us what will be a revolution on the market, starring 3 prototypes:
1 : The Turbofan
A turbojet engine that should be able to carry out intercontinental flights of 1890 Miles with 120 to 200 passengers on board. It would operate with a turbine that will provide energy through the combustion of hydrogen, which would be stored in tanks located at the rear of the pressurization chamber.
2 : BWB (Blended-Wing Body)
Able to contain 200 passengers, this futuristic design allows us many options, the liquid hydrogen tanks placed under the wings. Two hybrids turboblowers provides the power.
3 : The Turboprop
Last but not least. The Turboprop. Only able to contain 100 passengers and travel a distance 1000 nautical miles, compared to the others this prototype will be used for short distances.
