Programme Climate-neutral aviation
With the programme Climate-neutral aviation, NLR contributes towards cleaner and quieter aviation with less impact on climate and environment. One way we do this is through research into the development of aircraft powered by batteries, hydrogen and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), and the effect of this on operations.
Climate neutrality requires us to take into account the entire chain of production, use and recycling of the aircraft, and to apply this within a circular economy. Moreover, the programme helps to address the societal challenge to become as robust as possible in the face of climate change, and contributes towards sustainable aviation and improving the competitive position of the Netherlands.
