The concern of the decades
Climate change has become a headache for nearly all corporations around the world. With the changing conditions and rising temperature, it has become very important to develop sustainable solutions that do not affect the performance and yet go well with the environment. Something similar is also the line of thought of zeroavia, and its goal of introducing hydrogen-cell technology within the aviation industry. Read on to learn further details about it.
Throwback on the background
Based on British and American backgrounds, ZeroAvia is created by Val Miftakhov, an aerospace enthusiast. Since 2017, the company’s goal is to electrify aerospace components, like the e-vehicles, and transform the way the transportation industry is perceived.
Some of its key milestones include the following:
- Bringing up the hydrogen-powered aircraft in the market and cut off the excessive noises, carbon emissions, and maintenance costs.
- HyFlyer Project Phase I sets up the fuelling systems within the major airports and tests the infrastructure for upcoming commercialization.
- HyFlyer Project Phase II counts the journey based on the miles, starting from 500 miles and taking up to 1000 miles with 100 passengers by 2030.
Therefore, the goals of zeroavia seem very optimistic from an overall perspective.
The core technology in which ZeroAvia is investing is renewable-powered hydrogen-electric aviation, where the raw energy is harnessed out of the sun. With the solar energy, the hydrogen electrolyzer gets powered up and then enters into the aviation system. It fills up the hydrogen fuel tank and then provides the required thrust for air travel. As the only gases involved in the entire cycle are oxygen and water vapours, thus the overall concept is considered lean and green.
Therefore, it is a good concept and will surely get commercialized in the coming future.
