ZeroAvia Featured in New U.K. Video to Promote International Trade

Companies / Social Media Jul 08, 2021 - 03:04 PM GMT

By: Umer_Mahmood


ZeroAvia, the company that is revolutionizing the aviation industry, is a proud partner of the U.K.’s Department for International Trade.

ZeroAvia, which is developing sustainable aviation solutions in partnership with leading investors and airline partners, is one of the agency’s collaborators to promote trade with innovative U.K. companies.

A new video produced by the department that touts the country’s commitment to clean transportation solutions features ZeroAvia. Those technological advancements are critical pieces in the country’s move toward its goal of being net zero in emissions by 2050.

The video cites ZeroAvia’s innovative work to disrupt and transform global aviation. In one segment, it notes that the U.K. is now a global hub for innovation and collaboration for high-performance engineering solutions for planes, trains, and cars. In another, it directly references ZeroAvia’s “jet zero” technology to create the world’s first hydrogen airplane.

The new video touts the country’s accomplishments in producing clean energy and transportation, including its £5 billion blueprint for cleaner and greener public transportation. It also cites the U.K.’s progressive steps and innovations regarding clean energy, including:

  1. The move to end the sale of petrol and diesel cars by 2030.
  2. Having the world’s fastest rate of decarbonization and a green grid that powers the mobilization supply chain.
  3. The creation of the lithium-ion battery.
  4. Being home to Europe’s first factory devoted to the mass production of batteries for electric vehicles.
  5. The development of the next generation of power cells at an advanced open-access factory.
  6. The creation of pop-up airports for flying cars.
  7. Using wind assistance to ship goods across the world’s oceans.
  8. The world’s first fleet of hydrogen double-decker buses.

“Where will you find the world’s clean transport solutions?” the video asks. “We’re the U.K., and we’re ready to trade with you.”

ZeroAvia is among several major world-renowned companies featured in the video, including Formula 1, Jaguar Land Rover, Nissan, and Wrightbus.

In a post announcing the company’s participation in the video, ZeroAvia noted, “We are delighted to work with the U.K. government and DIT to showcase their advancements in developing clean transport solutions.”

For ZeroAvia, the collaboration with the government agency is one of several partnerships that the company has recently formed, a testament to its groundbreaking work in clean aviation.

Valery Miftakhov founded ZeroAvia in 2017 and now works as its chief executive officer. The company is using hydrogen-fueled powertrain technology to revolutionize air transportation. It expects to commercialize powertrains that will compete with the traditional engine technology of propeller airplanes. It plans to launch its first zero-emission, low-noise products by 2024.

Scalability is essential for ZeroAvia as it develops technologies to enable longer short-haul trips using its powertrain. It projects that its disruptive products will change air travel, with demand of as many as 100,000 units in the next 10 years.

The hydrogen-powered, zero-emission powertrain will help reduce the cost of trips by up to 50 percent due to a 75 percent drop in fuel and maintenance expenses. The company will start by building a powertrain that it can use in fixed-wing aircraft carrying 10 to 20 passengers, allowing the company to use existing infrastructure and reduce regulatory burdens.

The company projects a progressive series of newer, larger powertrain models for aircraft that are larger and in flights of longer mileage. ZeroAvia projects that, by 2040, its powertrain technology will drive aircraft with more than 200 seats on distances of up to 5,000 nautical miles.

In its short existence, ZeroAvia has made rapid strides. In 2019, ZeroAvia completed its first electric-powered test flights. A year later, it completed an eight-minute test flight in a six-seat plane.

The company has quickly established itself as a major player in the airline industry. Among its recent achievements, the company has:

  1. Been named a member of the Global Coalition for Sustainable Aviation, part of the United Nations’ International Civil Aviation Organization. The coalition supports the development and acceleration of new ideas to foster sustainable aviation and reduce emissions.
  2. Established a partnership with British Airways to assist the airline in its goal of having zero emissions by 2050.
  3. Secured $53 million in private funding, including a recent round of $24.3 million led by Horizon Ventures and including Breakthrough Energy Partners, Ecosystem Integrity Fund, Shell Ventures, Summa Equity, and SYSTEMIQ. A $21.4 million investment from Amazon as part of the retailer’s Climate Pledge Fund could use ZeroAvia technology as part of its plans to build its own air transportation logistics network.
  4. Been named one of 10 finalists by NASA iTech to present its findings in the 2021 Cycle I Forum, which brings together companies, NASA chief technologists, industry experts, and investors to support new technologies and accelerate the time to market.
  5. Been granted £12.3 million ($16.3 million) from the U.K.’s Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI) Programme to build a hydrogen-powered aircraft with 19 seats to complete a 350-mile flight.
  6. Been named a finalist in the transportation category of Fast Company’s 2021 World-Changing Ideas Awards.
  7. Been named by the World Economic Forum as a Technology Pioneer, an honor given to a select number of early- to growth-stage companies that use new technologies and innovation to have a major impact on business and society.
