Rolls-Royce celebrates success in engine programme

Rolls-Royce celebrated (27-May-2010) the successful running of the latest core engine build in its E3E (efficiency, environment, economy) two-shaft research programme. The technologies are designed to reduce fuel burn and CO2 emissions by 15%, compared with similar engines in service. E3E lean-burn will also reduce NOx emissions as part of the company’s drive to meet ACARE (Advisory Council for Aeronautics Research in Europe) targets of a 60% reduction by 2020. E3E is part of the German Aeronautics Research Programme, funded by the German Ministry of Economics and the Federal State of Brandenburg. [more]
