Hydrogen – a relevant factor for tomorrow’s carbon-free aviation?

Hydrogen – a relevant factor for tomorrow’s carbon-free aviation?

Look behind the scenes of a great idea – designing scenarios for the refueling infrastructure and supply network (in cooperation with Airbus)
Open for application

Our challenge

Hydrogen has great potential to contribute to the decarbonization of industry and transportation. One sector in which hydrogen is expected to play an important role is aviation. Aircraft manufacturers, airlines, and airports are developing new technologies and utilization concepts. Hamburg Airport, for example is preparing for the future use of hydrogen. But is it realistic to think that we are moving towards carbon-free aviation? What are the limiting factors? What ideas do you have for developing an efficient and reliable hydrogen supply system?
