- Sustainable Aviation Fuel
- Market Potential for Hydrogen-Powered Aircraft
Rolls-Royce unveiled a new cutting-edge hydrogen programme and provided further details on its research into hybrid-electric power, which continues to pioneer new forms of aviation sustainability.
Rolls-Royce shared: “Together with our commitment to continually improve gas turbine efficiency and demonstrate compatibility with Sustainable Aviation Fuel, this work ensures we will continue to play a leading role in the drive to Net Zero aviation.”
Rolls-Royce is working on a comprehensive series of rig and engine tests to show that the fuel can effectively and safely deliver power for small-mid size aircraft beginning in the mid-2030s.
The UK Aerospace Technology Institute’s Fly Zero team and Project NAPKIN, both of which had Rolls-Royce involvement, conducted market research and found that hydrogen-powered planes have commercial potential.
