Green energy is one of the most promising technologies of the future. However, it’s still got a while to go before it is the defining technology that allows people to achieve all of their goals in the transportation world.
While the ultimate goal of a “green” aircraft engine — one that doesn’t rely on pricey jet fuel — is still a long way away, Pratt & Whitney is taking important steps to give the aviation industry a much more environmentally friendly outlook.
Fuel Prices Are Down — But Pratt & Whitney Pushes Forward With Innovation
With fuel prices on the decline, it’s easy to imagine that a company would start to shift away from fuel economy and energy efficiency as potential selling points for their products. This is not the case for Pratt & Whitney, however.
In fact, it’s quite the opposite.
Recently, Pratt & Whitney announced a bold and aggressive sustainability goal: That it would substantially reduce waste by its 100th anniversary in 2025.
With a combination of goals that touch on efficiencies in operations and supply chain, it wants to become “the sustainability leader” in aviation.
What can customers expect? The chief goals are as follows:
- Zero waste from Pratt & Whitney factories, with 100% recycled material.
- Optimization of energy use, cutting greenhouse emissions by a full 80%.
- Water consumption cut by a full 80%, more than 700 million gallons.
- An industry-leading 100% recyclability rate for all Pratt & Whitney engines.
