Pratt & Whitney’s PurePower Geared Turbofan Engine

Pratt & Whitney’s PurePower Geared Turbofan (GTF) engine was cited as an Aviation Climate Solution by the Air Transport Action Group (ATAG) at the Global Sustainable Aviation Summit in Geneva, Switzerland.

The GTF’s engine technology reduces commercial aircraft fuel burn and carbon dioxide emissions by more than 16 percent, reduces regulated emissions by more than 50 percent and will reduce CO2 emissions at a level equivalent to planting nearly 1 million trees or removing 3 million cars off the road – every year. The engine reduces the aircraft noise footprint by more than 75 percent. Five airframers have chosen the GTF engine to power their new aircraft or re-engine existing models. Pratt & Whitney’s GTF is included as part of the Aviation Climate Solutions, a collection of 100 examples of collaboration within the aviation industry to cut carbon dioxide emissions and help reduce its impact on climate change.

“Aviation plays a vital role in the world economy, providing connectivity for people and business,” said Michael Gill, executive director, ATAG. “Our industry has also taken a lead in climate action, putting in place a comprehensive framework and goals to reduce emissions from air transport. The Aviation Climate Solutions are a set of case studies showing how different parts of the industry all over the world, including Pratt & Whitney are working together to reduce our climate impact.”
