A new engine technology should make air travel possible with a clear conscience. In the face of climate change, many people now board airplanes with a guilty conscience: emissions of climate-damaging carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuels are high. An international consortium wants to change that: The aim of the "MYTHOS" project is to develop aircraft engines that can flexibly use various sustainably produced fuels, up to and including pure hydrogen. The project, called "Medium-range hybrid low-pollution flexi-fuel/hydrogen sustainable engine," will be funded by the European Union for four years starting January 1, 2023. It is coordinated by Prof. Dr. Francesca di Mare, holder of the Chair of Thermal Turbomachinery and Aero Engines at RUB.
The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the Ruhr-University Bochum has an agreement which enables students to exchange with the Tokyo School of Mechanical Engineering. If you want to get more information on this follow this link, Tokyo School of Engineering, or please contact Prof. Dr. Francesca di Mare or Dr. Holger Grote.
