. Pratt And Whitney Canada New Generation Engines Lead Green Evolution

The PW307 engine, which recently entered service on Dassault Aviation's Falcon 7X, currently betters ICAO standards for nitrous oxide (NOx) emissions by 33 per cent and meets Zurich 5 emissions requirements for no landing fee surcharges.

Pratt and Whitney Canada (P and WC) is at the forefront of the green evolution in aerospace with its newest generation of engine technologies and environmental stewardship across all facets of its business. P and WC is a United Technologies company.

"As the No. 1 R and D investor in Canada's aerospace sector, P and WC has invested strategically over the last several years in the development of green technologies," said John Saabas, Executive Vice President, P and WC. "We are committed to bringing engines to the market that are designed, produced and operated to minimize any impact on the environment and our natural resources throughout their entire life cycle."

P and WC's new-generation engines are demonstrating unmatched performance in surpassing International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) emissions standards. The PW307 engine, which recently entered service on Dassault Aviation's Falcon 7X, currently betters ICAO standards for nitrous oxide (NOx) emissions by 33 per cent and meets Zurich 5 emissions requirements for no landing fee surcharges. This achievement is the result of a revolutionary TALONTM 2 combustion technology that reduces emissions while delivering outstanding performance, durability and operating economics.

A new 10,000-pound-thrust-class engine developed by P and WC for the next generation of large, long-range corporate jets will better current ICAO standards for NOx emissions by 50 per cent and meet the most stringent emissions standards for the next 10 to 15 years. The engine will also offer a step-change in fuel burn compared with current leading engines and is designed for low noise, well below Stage IV standards.

P and WC is investing $1.5 billion Cdn in research and development over the next five years to continue building on its successes. "Our goal is to stay far ahead of the curve with respect to our green engine technologies, and we have a rigorous plan in place to achieve this," continued Saabas.

P and WC is also helping to reduce greenhouse gases by producing the most fuel-efficient engines in the aerospace market through the development of improved engine components and lighter materials. Its research and development work has also resulted in the elimination of hazardous materials in its newest engine models and generated significant improvements in waste, air emissions, and water and energy consumption in both the engine manufacturing and repair processes.

"P and WC's new-generation engines are the perfect example of what the world has come to expect from P and WC, a global leader in reliable aircraft power and in green technologies," said Saabas.
