ZeroAvia has been at the forefront of coming up with the right technology to reduce air pollution. They have researched widely to produce hydrogen-powered engines that can run airplanes. The research at ZeroAvia aviation company started on small planes, but they show signs of success on large planes. The United airlines and the Alaska Air Group have funded the company to research more and develop high-capacity airplane engines to improve their carbon footprints. The engines developed by ZeroAvia produce only water as byproducts. They are very effective in conserving the environment.
Raising $35 Million from United and Alaska Air Group
The agreement between the airlines and ZeroAvia led to raising $35 million. The money will play a great role in developing more engines. They will have to research more and develop engine designs to power high-capacity airlines. They are required to develop engines that will be fitted in old models and new models of aircraft run by the airlines. It is a move from ZeroAvia that will lead to more savings in the process. They have made efforts to ensure that air travel is environmentally friendly and safe for travelers.
Providing Hydrogen-Electric Engines
The deal will lead to the production of hydroelectric engines. The main source of fuel will be hydrogen for planes from ZeroAvia. The technology has been tested on small airplanes and proven to work. To scale things up, they aim to test it on large airplanes. It will lead to the production of more reliable airplane engines that eliminate the use of carbon-based fuel.
Engines for Large Aircraft
The engines that will be developed can power up to 80 seat capacity aircraft. It will be a big move from ZeroAvia aviation company towards making air travel emissions-free. The issue of air pollution due to jet fuel has affected many people, and the technology will be very helpful. The experts at ZeroAvia aim at making the technology more accessible.
