As GE unveils its 2021 Sustainability Report, we looked back at some of this year’s biggest developments, which include sustainable aviation fuel, software that improves efficiency, hybrid electric propulsion, hydrogen fuel and other technologies.
When it comes to the future of flight, sustainability is at the core. GE Aviation has technologies available now and is developing new technologies to reduce CO2 emissions.
New season of Cutting Carbon podcast features GE Aviation’s advanced technologies leader Arjan Hegeman explaining new engine technologies in development that could help the aviation industry reduce CO2 emissions.
The RACER, with its hybrid helicopter-plane design, is taking shape at Airbus’s Helicopters assembly plant at Donauwörth in Bavaria.
The sounds from Top Gun: Maverick weren’t produced out of thin air. GE Aviation put its jet engines to work, teaming up with Skywalker Sound to capture some of the thrilling audio from the movie.
Last weekend, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines passengers took special flights to Edmonton and Porto, even if they didn’t know it was part of The Sustainable Flight Challenge. The flights were powered by GEnx and CF34 engines using a mix of approved Sustainable Aviation Fuel.

United To Fly World’s First Passenger Flight On 100% Sustainable Aviation Fuel Supplying One Of Its Engines
Making history. Today United will fly the first commercial flight full of passengers to use 100% drop-in sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) for one of the aircraft’s two LEAP-1B engines.
From a show-stopping GE9X-powered 777X flying display to headline grabbing sustainability news, see all the GE Aviation headlines from the 2021 Dubai Airshow.
At the Dubai Airshow this week, one of the most anticipated sights will be the Boeing 777X, Boeing’s new plane powered by the GE9X, the most powerful jet engine in the world. But thrust is just one of the engine’s many attributes. It’s also tough and the United Arab Emirates, a hot, desert country that also happens to be the base for two of the world’s largest airlines — Emirates and Etihad Airways — is an ideal place to talk about the engine’s brawn.
Data may not be what makes the world go round, but it can help airlines increase fuel efficiency and, by extension, help reduce carbon dioxide emissions when their passengers are on globe-trotting adventures.
Wash And Go: GE’s New Way Of Cleaning Jet Engines Can Help Airlines Cut Emissions And Improve Operations
We have reinvented how to clean a jet engine. Meet GE’s 360 Foam Wash, the powerful approach thoroughly cleans a commercial jet engine, helping to improve its performance and potentially eliminate tons of climate-damaging CO2.
