Reaction Engines, STFC engaged in ground-breaking study on ammonia fuel for a sustainable aviation propulsion system


Reaction Engines has recently completed a joint Proof of Concept study with the UK’s Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) to determine whether the Company’s innovative thermal management technology could be combined with STFC’s world-class catalysts to create a truly green aviation system based on ammonia fuel.

Opportunities for hydrogen in commercial aviation


CSIRO has partnered with Boeing to produce a report on how clean hydrogen-based technologies can make a significant contribution to emissions reduction in the aviation sector.

Hydrogen could help power new zero-emission Airbus jet


A zero-emission commercial jet could still be ready by the early 2030s but requires decisive action across multiple industries to make it happen, aviation experts said on Tuesday.

Greener aviation set for end-of-year lift


An EU initiative aimed at boosting the uptake of cleaner aviation fuels is set to launch at the end of 2020 and a new push by the European Commission to streamline tax policy might yet have a big impact on air travel’s carbon footprint.

Airbus ponders hydrogen’s flying future


European aerospace giant Airbus sees hydrogen power as “one of the most promising technologies available” to decarbonise air travel and is looking to utilise it as part of plans to roll out a zero-emission aircraft by 2035.

How carbon-sucking machines could cut aviation emissions


Two companies have teamed up on a project that could provide a key test of our ability to use synthetic fuel, made from carbon dioxide captured from the air, to cut emissions from aviation.
Carbon Engineering, a direct air capture company based in British Columbia, has signed a deal with Aerion, a startup based in Reno, Nevada, that is developing a supersonic business jet known as the AS2, to evaluate whether fuel derived from CO2-sucking machines can enable carbon-neutral commercial flights.
