Airbus thinks about a particularly climate-friendly aircraft. "Our goal is to build the first low-emission passenger aircraft in the world," said CEO Guillaume Faury on Thursday evening at an event the Clubs of Hamburg business journalists and the aviation press-club.
perhaps you have a machine with hybrid-electric drive, the wanted Airbus to 2035 in the sky was. In the realization of the North-German development network of the European aircraft manufacturer, should play an important role.

put the Technical Details of the planned pilot Faury is not called. The Considerations are still at an early stage of development. Hybrid drives, which combine a conventional combustion engine with an electric drive, are from the automotive industry. The manufacturers use reinforced, in order to reduce the CO2 emissions of their vehicle fleets to achieve the more stringent climate targets in the EU.
Airbus wanted to play a leading role in the effort to lead the air travel in a sustainable future, said Faury. On the way there, however, is highly complex and will be years, if not decades, and require large investments. A climate-friendly energy production is also crucial. Faury said the mass production of low-CO2 fuels such as hydrogen and synthetic fuels (E-Fuels), which are generated by use of renewable energy. This area put today, still in its infancy. Important is the development of a greener energy sector, which is less dependent on coal and natural gas, was Faury stressed. (Dec/sda)
