Airbus’ new ZEDCs to accelerate hydrogen propulsion; concentrate efforts on metallic hydrogen tanks

Airbus will establish zero-emission development centres (ZEDC) in Bremen, Germany, and Nantes, France, to concentrate efforts on metallic hydrogen tanks and accelerate development of hydrogen propulsion.

In a statement today (June 14), the technology developments will cover the full product and industrial capabilities from elementary parts, assembly, systems integration and the cryogenic testing of the final liquid hydrogen (LH2) tank system.

Both of the ZEDCs are expected to be fully operational by 2023 and will help build LH2 tanks with a first flight set for 2025.
