MTU is working on a revolutionary propulsion concept, the FFC, which aims to achieve virtually emissions-free flight through complete electrification of the powertrain.
The core of the system is the fuel cell stacks. The electrochemical conversion of hydrogen into electricity is highly efficient. Moreover, the electrochemical reaction takes place under considerably cooler conditions than conventional combustion. While this fact clearly calls for an efficient cooling system, it also makes things a little simpler, for example regarding the choice of materials and integration options. The platinum used in the fuel cell is highly recyclable— when processed properly, it and other metals can be reused almost indefinitely. Also, this energy conversion takes place in the stacks, effectively without moving parts. Stay informed: Hydrogen Innovation
