Universal Hydrogen has successfully taken its 40-passenger regional hydrogen electric plane to the skies. Universal Hydrogen Co. is a Southern California-based aviation company founded in 2020 by engineers with the mission of bringing zero-emission hydrogen electric-powered aviation to fruition.
The aircraft has the capability to eventually transport over 40 passengers using hydrogen fuel cells and electric powertrains.
Powered by sunshine, emitting nothing but water, green hydrogen has been called the quintessential forever fuel.
Adelaide-based Sparc is prototype testing its photocatalytic reactor
technology to split water into its constituent hydrogen and oxygen
molecules at CSIRO’s Energy Centre in Newcastle, New South WalesThe photocatalytic water splitting technology is expected to deliver
cost and flexibility advantages over green hydrogen projects that use
electrolysers or solar farms, given the lower infrastructure and energy requirements.Sparc executive chair Stephen Hunt said this is “a world leading demonstration of photocatalytic water
splitting in a concentrated solar field"https://www.innovationaus.com/adelaide-uni-fortsecue-hydrogen-venture-starts-testing-prototype/
