HyPoint And GTL Ultra-Light Liquid Hydrogen Tanks Could Be A Jet Fuel Game Changer

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Hydrogen Fuel News.

This is a sentence from the article.

HyPoint and GTL have been developing a groundbreaking liquid hydrogen cryotank design that could turn the entire aircraft industry on its head.

It is claimed that these ultra-light tanks could give a four times increase in range for jet-fuelled aircraft.

The article also claims that HyPoint has developed a new ctype of fuel-cell that could make conventional jet fuel obsolete.

Occasionally, ideas come along, that are literally too good to be true! Usually, they are!

But this one could be the one in a hundred, that isn’t!

Visit the HyPoint web site and see what you think!

I also think, that the technology may have other applications, in addition to aviation.

  1. Interesting a double benefit from an improvement in the weight efficiency of fuel cell per kwh/kg delivered matched by a reduction in the weight of the storage. Of course the panacea will be when someone comes up with a wing that can store Hydrogen at 300PSi.

    • Nevermind 300psi, you’ll need to start at 350bar

  2. Have you ever read about how the Douglas Skyhawk was designed? An amazing exercise to show how weight could be saved.
