Rolls-Royce has powered an aircraft engine using hydrogen instead of jet fuel-a first in the world of aviation. The British brand, along with its test partner EasyJet, utilized green hydrogen created by wind and tidal power, to fuel a converted Rolls-Royce AE 2100-A turboprop engine. The companies want to prove that hydrogen could play a major role in decarbonizing air travel.
