The successful implementation of H2ELIOS will
- have a significant impact on the aviation industry, helping to de-carbonize it and pave the way for hydrogen-powered aircraft.
- contribute to the advancement of hydrogen storage technology and the use of sustainable materials in the aerospace industry.
- support the overall goal of achieving climate neutrality in the aviation sector by 2050.
- accelerate the entry into market in 2035 (or earlier) of a zero-emission aircraft and contribute to the competitiveness of the EU market.
- allow flight demonstrations are planned for 2026 under the umbrella of CAJU.
- enable LH2 as fuel in aviation. This reduces 100% of CO2 emissions during operation and up to 90% of GHG impact with a fuel cell powerplant and up to 75% of GHG emissions with H2 combustion powerplant.
