Hydrogen Aviation in the US

October 12, 2021

Whether they are boarded to go on holiday, take a business trip, or visit some long-distance relatives, airplanes are now one of the world’s most common forms of transportation. Whilst the popularity of air travel remains high, however, unfortunately so does the amount of emissions that these aircraft emit.

According to the Air Transport Action Group (ATAG), flights produced 915 million tonnes of CO2 in 2019 worldwide to carry over 4.5 billion passengers. Of course, flight transportation is pretty much compulsory these days for long distance travel, but the pressure is ramping up for those operating such flights to enhance operations for a more sustainable future.

With that in mind, air travel companies are looking to cut emissions as they work to meet various decarbonisation targets, such as those laid out in the Paris Climate Agreement in 2015. To do this, various aviation companies are already exploring the use of alternative fuels, in which hydrogen is proving to be very applicable.
