  2. ENVIRONMENT • New engines offer ever-lower fuel burn and emissions • CFM’s LEAP, entry into service 2016, will cut fuel consumption by 15% over the engine it replaces • Pratt & Whitney’s PurePower reduces emissions by 15-20% over the engine it replaces • Rolls-Royce’s Trent XWB shows a 16% increase in efficiency over the first Trent engine in 1996 • By 2025 open rotor engines by GE Aviation, Snecma and Rolls-Royce could offer 20-25% fuel efficiency improvement Lower emissions through new engine design

  3. ENVIRONMENT • Bringing new meaning to ‘wings’ at an airport -300 tonnes of CO2 per year • East Midlands Airport has installed two wind turbines on-airport • They produce 5% of the airport’s energy needs, or enough electricity to power 150 homes • Airport needed to work closely with the Civil Aviation Authority to ensure no interference with airport operations • Will reduce emissions by 300 tonnes of CO2 per year • Being used in conjunction with other efficiency tools such as a biomass boiler in the terminal building • This will use willow specially-grown on airport property • Will reduce emissions by 350 tonnes of CO2 per yar

  4. ENVIRONMENT • More green landings in Brussels • Brussels Airlines, Belgocontrol, Brussels Airport and SESAR • Continuous descent operations at Brussels Airport • 3,000 flights over a 10 month period • A320 saves on average 50kgs of fuel and 160kgs of CO2 per landing • A330 saves 100kgs of fuel and 315kgs of CO2 • Noise also decreases • Currently, 9% of flights at BRU use CDO • Partners working to increase this • Challenge remains doing so in Europe’s congested airspace – AMS, FRA, LHR, LGW, CGD all close Continuous descents = 160-315kgs less CO2 per landing

  5. ENVIRONMENT • Yellow tubes making a lot of difference FEGP saves 100,000 tonnes of CO2 at LHR alone • Airports all over the world are installing fixed electrical ground power for aircraft when they are at the gate • This reduces the use of the APU, a small generator in the tail of the aircraft • Used for powering on-board systems such as air conditioning while the main engines are not running • At Heathrow Airport, the use of these units saves 100,000 tonnes of CO2 per year • At Zurich Airport, these units save 30,000 tonnes of CO2 per year

  6. ENVIRONMENT • Airport operations, powered by the sun Solar power being installed at airports • A number of airports are installing solar arrays on-airport • Overcoming issues such as glare, which can be a hindrance to pilots • Can make use of large open spaces, as well as terminal and hanger rooftops • Denver Airport’s provides power to the fuel hydrant system • Düsseldorf Airport’s will generate 2 Mw per year, enough to power 600 homes • Alice Springs Airport’s will generate 28% of its energy needs, reducing emissions by 470 tonnes per year

  7. CO2 MONITORING • Over half of European passengers • ACI Europe’s Airport Carbon Accreditation Programme encourages airports to monitor and reduce airport-related CO2 emissions • Over 55 airports have signed up to the programme, representing 52% of European travellers • Has saved over 730,000 tonnes of CO2 across airports so far • Avinor, Oslo Airport part of the programme 730,000 tonnes of CO2 saved by European airports

  8. EFFICIENCY • United Airlines saves weight, trees and backs with iPad iPads on one airline to save over 3,000 tonnes CO2 • United Airlines is providing its flight crew with iPads • Can store all manuals and navigation charts • Used to be 17kgs of paper (12,000 pages per pilot) • Across the UA fleet, it will save 326,000 gallons of fuel per year by reducing weight • That is 3,208 tonnes of CO2

  9. RECYCLING AND REDUCING WEIGHT • A new interior for passenger comfort and energy efficiency • Southwest Airlines is installing a new interior on its fleet of 737 aircraft • Recyclable carpet laid in squares (so a single square can be replaced if damaged) • E-leather seat covers (lightweight, scuff-resistant) • Lighter seats (635 pounds less weight per aircraft) • Use of more resistant aluminium for scuff pads and seat struts Recycled materials, lightweight new seats

  10. EFFICIENCY • Putting the food trolleys on a diet Nearly 30,000 tonnes CO2 saved annually • Lufthansa is introducing new composite, light-weight food service trolleys on its European fleet • New trolley is a third lighter than previous version • Will reduce emissions by 28,350 tonnes of CO2 annually • LH is also introducing new cargo and luggage containers made from light but durable plastic • Containers will save 6.867 tonnes of CO2 per year • Also, 32,000 new slim-line and light-weight seats on the short- and medium-haul fleet will save 300kgs per aircraft

  11. EFFICIENCY • Bringing ATM efficiency to remote regions • Nav Canada has installed an Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) system in the remote Hudson Bay region of Canada • Allows continual monitoring of aircraft position (and therefore much more accurate tracking of flights) • Aircraft can now fly shorter routes and more closely together, safely • Between 2009 and 2015, Nav Canada expects airlines will save $195 million in fuel • Will also reduce CO2 emissions by 547,000 tonnes Over half a million tonnes of CO2 saved in Canada

  12. EFFICIENCY • Looking everywhere for fuel saving opportunities • Honeywell and Safran will jointly develop new electric taxiing systems for aircraft • Will allow aircraft to taxi without engine power • Potentially save airlines 4% of fuel use (and CO2 emissions) 4% reduction in fuel burn

  13. EFFICIENCY • Engine washing proving its worth One mid-size airline reduces CO2 by 22,000 tonnes • Pratt & Whitney’s EcoPower programme washes engines to increase efficiency • Hawaiian Airlines, one of the airline customers, has reduced CO2 emissions by 22,000 tonnes over the last six years by regularly cleaning its engines • Equivalent to removing 700 cars from the road • Process recycles the water in a closed-loop process

  14. EFFICIENCY • Over 3 billion gallons of fuel saved Winglets on the fleet saved 32 million tonnes CO2 • Blended winglets can be added to new aircraft or retro-fitted on older aircraft • Reduce drag through changing the wake vortex characteristics of an aircraft • Winglets now flying on over 5,000 aircraft worldwide • Have saved over 3 billion gallons of fuel • Reduced CO2 emissions by some 32 million tonnes

  15. EFFICIENCY • Bringing it all together • Electronic flight bags, saving weight and reducing CO2 by 17,000 tonnes across the fleet.
