Aircraft manufacturer Airbus has unveiled concepts for zero-emission commercial aircrafts that would be powered by hydrogen and could be in service by 2035.

Named ZEROe, each concept shows different ways of achieving zero-emission flights. Airbus developed the designs of three electronic aircraft types: a turbofan design, a turboprop design and a “blended-wing body”, which would all be powered by hydrogen.

The turbofan version would be able to carry 120 to 200 passengers and have a range of more that 2,000 miles, with the capability of travelling across continents.

Similarly to the turbofan version, the turboprop design would also be powered by hydrogen combustion in modified gas-turbine engines, and would be able to carry up to 100 passengers for more than 1,000 miles.

The plane with a “blended-wing body” would be able to hold up to 200 passengers. Owing to its exceptionally wide fuselage, this concept would offer multiple options for both hydrogen storage and distribution and cabin layout.
