Why Hydrogen Could Beat Batteries to Zero Emission Flight!

From Fully Charged Show.

Flights without a massive carbon footprint is possibly every eco minded tourist’s dream. Fortunately, they may be on the horizon thanks to efforts from companies like ZeroAvia who are developing hydrogen fuel cell planes. In this episode, Imogen went to an airfield tucked away in the Cotswolds, UK to find out how the Zero Avia are making the world’s biggest zero emission plane possible and to find out why they’re betting on hydrogen over battery technology. Fasten your seatbelt and put your seat in the upright position to prepare for take off!
