Climate protection and a high quality of life – our approach to mobility is a decisive factor here, now and in the future. Shaping the mobility transition in a successful manner also helps to strengthen Germany as a location for industry.
What are the technological options for aircraft to be operated in a climate-neutral way?
For the foreseeable future, aircraft will be dependent on liquid fuels, especially on long-haul flights
In addition to bio-kerosene from residual and waste materials, synthetic kerosene (PtL kerosene) from renewable electricity will be used in the future.
For smaller short-haul aircraft, hydrogen and fuel cell technology also offer long-term prospects for the use in addition to renewable kerosene.
