Liquid hydrogen fuelled aircraft - system analysis (CRYOPLANE)

Liquid hydrogen fuelled aircraft - system analysis (CRYOPLANE)

Objective

Liquid Hydrogen is the only known fuel suitable for aviation to be produced from renewable energy sources and offering extremely "Low Pollutant Emissions" (zero CO2, very low NOx). The project will assess all relevant aspects:
Practical solutions (configurations) for all categories of commercial aircraft;
Architecture and quantitative analysis of new systems, including computer mode for fuel system simulation and weight estimate;
Engine concepts with emphasis on minimising NOx;
Definition of airport infrastructure for fuel production and distribution;
Analysis of Safety and Environmental Compatibility;
Transition scenarios, global and regional.
The project will provide a comprehensive analysis of complex and interrelated aspects. It will produce technical concepts, solutions and tools. It will indicate possible introduction strategies for Europe. Highly qualified partners will come from 11 European countries.
