Mr. Val Miftakhov

Speaker / Panelist

Founder & CEO, ZeroAvia

 

Making Aviation Sustainable: A 100-seat Zero-Emission Jet by 2030: Val will address the scope of carbon emissions generated by today’s aviation sector and the challenges the industry faces in reducing emissions with existing solutions. He’ll then discuss the emerging trend of aviation electrification and specifically cover ZeroAvia’s breakthrough hydrogen-electric powertrain technology for commercial aircrafts now backed by Bill Gates’ Breakthrough Energy Ventures, the Amazon Climate Pledge Fund, Shell Ventures, and other notable investors who see this as the most economical, near-term solution for zero-emission flight. Most importantly, Val will convey how innovations like ZeroAvia’s will impact the aviation industry, what current major airline partners like British Airways are trying to achieve when it comes to their sustainability goals, and when we can all expect to see large-scale, decarbonised commercial jets in our skies.
