Airbus shows three concepts of the world's first hydrogen liner


The European aviation giant Airbus has presented three concepts for a promising airliner that will fly on hydrogen fuel. It is assumed that such solutions will reduce the emission of harmful substances into the atmosphere to zero and can be put into operation in 15 years.


All three projects of promising liners received the symbolic code name ZEROe. The first passenger aircraft is designed for 120-200 passengers and will be able to cover a distance of over 3700 km. This, as the concern believes, is ideal for transcontinental destinations. The board is equipped with modified gas turbine power plants operating on hydrogen, and the fuel itself will be stored and distributed through reservoirs, which are located behind the rear sealed frame.

The second version of the liner will be able to fly over a distance of 1800 km and take on board up to 100 passengers. The aircraft operates on modified hydrogen gas turbine engines and is intended for domestic flights.

The third concept is a mixed-wing passenger aircraft. The liner will be able to take on board up to 200 passengers and cover distances of over 3700 km. At the same time, its design features allow the use of a variety of combinations of cabin layout and fuel storage.


Airbus Chief Executive Guillaume Faury said the concepts presented by the company will enable the study and selection of the ideal layout and design for the world's first zero-emission commercial aircraft. A promising aircraft is scheduled to enter service by 2035.

On the whole, the course taken by the aircraft building corporation fully fits into the "environmental doctrine" of the European Union. However, implementation of the innovation will require significant financial support from the state. In particular, to create the necessary infrastructure for transportation, storage and refueling of liners with hydrogen.

    and in the production of hydrogen, apparently, there are no harmful emissions?))) All in all, you need several coal or fuel oil power plants to split water into atoms ... they refused from the nuclear power plant, the Russian gas supposedly smells not so ... I wonder, in case of an emergency landing, they will they drain the hydrogen or will it be like the Germans with the airship when the tank is depressurized?

      Well, there was sabotage with airships. Well, here - this is not a year to build - and immediately as a set - it can be seen preparing for a long time. And hydrogen can be obtained by hydrolysis. In chemistry lessons at school, everyone did the experiment. So don't)

        hydrogen burned, and why it burned is not important. hydrolysis for thanks going on? or electrolysis?

        There is only one thing to get hydrogen, but how to store, transport, safety of use, and the use of units and infrastructure are still at zero, there are no funny sea problems ... It seems like another chimera, and there is nothing to jump into and invest in, wait, we'll see, it seems to be forgotten as another a chimera of well-meaning futurists ...

      so Gazprom will invest ... they are lobbying for the gasification of railroad and road transport.

        Where will you invest? Did Gazprom tell you this?
        For four years nothing has been heard about a hydrogen plane.

          The flying laboratory was finalized, and in January 1989, a car, one of the engines of which used liquefied natural gas (LNG) for operation, took off. This and subsequent flights showed the real prospects for the use of methane in aviation. Gazprom also did not report about diesel locomotives running on natural gas in advance. in the video they talk not only about hydrogen

            do not shout !!! The flying laboratory was finalized, and in January 1989, a car, one of the engines of which used liquefied natural gas (LNG) for operation, took off. This and subsequent flights showed the real prospects for the use of methane in aviation.

            And I haven't yelled yet. winked Well, they showed the prospect, by the way to whom? What's next? As soon as they can switch to hydrogen, they will restrict the flights of other planes, as our planes with noisier engines used to push. They just do not care about the environment, this is a hypocritical cover for the competition.

              they will not switch to hydrogen. for methane yes. hydrogen production is more expensive and more difficult to maintain.

                That is why they will switch. They also need to make it harder, because there are fewer competitors, and more expensive ...... Fans and solar batteries are also more expensive, but they go for it. Ecoshiza rules the ball laughing

                  already switched to concords ... where are they? move production to countries where they do not suffer from eco-friendly. profitability of air transportation is several percent. for the sake of show-off, once skate on hydrogen and then on a kerosene low-cost airline?))

                      green is politics. they do not care about the environment ... competitors are eliminated.

                        This is "business", but they eliminate competitors. What does it change? They will make planes running on hydrogen, they will date it, and old planes will not be allowed in.

                        it's good that we can still flood a wood-fired sauna, and not sit on ice boards under an infrared heater powered by solar panels ...

    three concepts of the world's first hydrogen liner

    In 1988, the Tu-155 aircraft flew on liquefied hydrogen. Airbus was simply forgotten, as was the author of the article.
