As much as we have to cut aviation emissions, batteries will not work. Replacing turbine-powered aircraft with similarly sized electric aircraft will require a quantum leap in battery technology – and we’re just not there yet.

How can we make aviation more sustainable?

According to studies of the UK Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI) aviation can achieve the net zero target for 2050 through the development of both sustainable jet fuel (SAF) and green liquid hydrogen technologies.

They also emphasize that green liquid hydrogen is the optimal fuel for the first generation of zero-emission aircraft.

According to the ATI, targeted investment in the technology could help the UK increase its civil aerospace market share from 12% today to 19% in 2050. This would increase the sector’s gross value added to the economy from £11 billion to £36 billion – and the number of aerospace jobs from 116,000 to 154,000.

Accordingly, the UK has gradually ramped up its hydrogen efforts in the field in recent years.

In March 2021 British Airways invested in ZeroAvia – a British/American developer of hydrogen-electric aircraft – in an effort to accelerate the development of hydrogen-powered aircraft.
