Dr Ruth Knibbe from UQ discussed how fuel cells and battery systems might make it possible to electrify aircrafts, as well as other opportunities and barriers surrounding aircraft electrification.
Paul Perera from PXL-ICE explored how the digitalisation of airports can help progress sustainability and consider smart architecture for waste management, monitoring of traffic, scheduling of more sustainable fuels – Hydrogen and SAF. This presentation aimed to visualise the use of AI and a control tower to build a more sustainable hub around an airport for the future.
