Liquid hydrogen supply for H2-powered aircraft

Commercial aircraft powered by H2 propulsion systems are currently being developed by several companies. However, a cost-competitive fuel supply chain is also required for a successful entry into service. In this presentation, the techno-economics of green LH2 supply chains to or at airports are shown and major trends analyzed. Furthermore, and based on an exemplary air traffic network, the operating costs of H2-powered aircraft are finally determined.
