BRITISH & CARBON EMISSIONS FREE AIRCRAFT FOR COMMERCIAL FLIGHTS
|Concept Long Range Electric Plane|
The United Kingdom wants to be the first to develop a commercial jet plane to fly across the Atlantic without any carbon emissions. UK Transport Secretary Grant Shapps made the pledge today. He was re-enforcing Prime Minister Boris Johnson promise on Tuesday that the UK would produce the world's first zero-emissions, long haul passenger plane.
The British government has set up the JetZero Council to specifically move their program forward. A lot is entailed including sustainable aviation fuels, electric planes, hybrid planes and hydrogen planes.
There is a global goal to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050. That is a key goal that Prime Minister Johnson has in developing the world first zero emissions, long distance passenger planes.
