Abstract

Aviation is a major greenhouse gas contributor responsible for around 3.2% of global CO2 emissions to the atmosphere. That corresponds to over than 1 billion metric tons of carbon (A metric ton is slightly smaller than the American imperial ton—but to be precise, it is 1,000 kilograms—however the two are comparable) being added to the atmosphere yearly. Therefore, the race to find alternatives to fossil fuels for planes is being intensified and in recent years, new and more highly efficient engines have contributed to reducing fuel consumption and harmful emissions. However, despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, global passenger and cargo air traffic is projected to grow by 4% per year to 2040. Biofuels, hydrogen, and electricity are three ways in which the aviation industry can respond to rising emissions and sustainability. The aim is to develop a more compact design for hydrogen production from ammonia to offer a viable means for hydrogen air transportation and storage in the form of ammonia. More importantly, we are considering this approach to a be a viable solution for long-haul aviation powered by hydrogen. We will present results demonstrating our world-class expertise in membrane development (hydrogen-nitrogen separation).

Keywords: Greenhous gas, CO2 emissions, aviation, fuel, long-haul, transport, hydrogen, fuel cell, ammonia, membranes.
