Faster H2

Project Details

Description

Hydrogen fuel could bring aviation a step closer to reaching net-zero emissions, yet the transition to hydrogen involves a rethinking of aircraft design. Another critical aspect is to ensure safe hydrogen distribution given the fuel’s high combustibility and rapid dispersion. Green propulsion and fuel technologies will significantly change what the fuselage architecture (the rear fuselage, the empennage structure as well as cabin and cargo) will look like. The EU-funded FASTER-H2 project will investigate advanced technologies for designing an integrated fuselage and empennage configuration to reduce production waste and increase material exploitation. This integrated fuselage concept is expected to reach a TRL 3-4 by 2025. Overall, these efforts will contribute to the sustainability and decarbonisation of the aviation industry.
