Do you believe in zero-emission flights by 2035? ✈
The aviation industry is one of the most polluting in the world. And it’s also a growing industry, so there are more and more flights every day!
Airbus, one of the two airplanes manufacturer (Boeing is the other one) recently unveiled a protoype for a zero-emission, hydrogen-fuelled aircraft that could by ready by 2035.
This sounds like great news, but in order for this project to work, there are many factors in play.
First, we need to find a way to produce large amounts of hydrogen from renewable energy.
Today, hydrogen is mainly produced from fossil fuels, particularly methane.
Airbus also stated that for this project to work, airports around the world would need to make important infrastructure changes.
So before we can see zero-emission commercial flights in the sky, there is still work to do!
In the meantime, try to reduce your air travel when you can, by looking at alternatives like trains.
Also, reduce business travel and switch to video conferences!
