    " Airbus could launch a commercial airliner running on green hydrogen produced from wind and solar by the early 2030s, said a senior executive from the global aerospace group.

    Tapping renewable hydrogen for aircraft propulsion is “one of the most promising” routes for the aviation sector to meet its zero-emissions goals, said Glenn Llewellyn, vice president, zero emissions technology, at Airbus.

    Llewellyn predicted that hydrogen has a “very attractive” outlook for powering aircraft up to 200 passengers, with potential application through combustion in engines, or in fuel-cell technologies that produce electric power. "
