FAA Gives $125M To Produce Green Air Technology

Posted on June 28, 2010. Filed under: Events, News | Tags: , , , , , , , , |

The FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) has awarded $125 million in contracts, envisioning new green technologies to improve fuel burn and reduce jet fuel consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, and noise pollution.  The companies that FAA has awarded contracts with include General Electric, Honeywell, Pratt and Whitney, Rolls Royce, and Boeing. These contracts were a part of the CLEEN program to develop and demonstrate new technologies, procedures, and alternative fuels that help us meet environmental and efficiency goals by the year 2015. These goals include reducing fuel burn by 33%, which will also reduce greenhouse gas emissions, reducing landing and takeoff nitrogen oxide emissions by 60%, reducing noise levels by 32 dB relative to the current noise standard; and increasing use of more sustainable jet fuels, with transition strategies that don’t require significant aircraft or engine modification.
