High-temperature fuel cells at high altitudes - Alex Ivanenko of HyPoint

HyPoint's website lays out the problem clearly and succinctly: "By 2050, aviation will be responsible for 25% of global greenhouse gas emissions, up from just 10% today — unless we do something. We can not solve the existential climate crisis without zero-emission air transportation." As the world slowly emerges from lockdown and the pace of global travel accelerates once again, the aviation sector is rocketing back atop the list of the most highly carbon emitting industries. In just the past few years, hydrogen fuel cell technologies have emerged as the most promising path to a decarbonized future for aviation.

HyPoint, led by its CEO and co-founder, Alex Ivanenko, is at the cutting edge of the industry's efforts to find zero-emissions aircraft propulsion systems that do not sacrifice speed and power in the name of sustainability. HyPoint is a leading producer of high-temperature PEM fuel cells for aviation applications including for logistic drones, air taxis, electric vertical takeoff and landing vehicles (eVTOLs), and fixed-wing airplanes. On this episode of the EAH podcast, the team speaks with Alex about the incredible pace of development and rapid innovation that he and his colleagues are driving in the hydrogen aviation space and how his company is leading the way in a highly complex and competitive race to decarbonize modern air travel.
