Rolls-Royce’s jet engines to run on synthetic fuels as part of net-zero plans
Manufacturer says all products launched after 2030 will use sustainable fuels yet to be approved
Rolls-Royce, the jet engine maker, has said that all products launched after 2030 will be capable of running with net zero carbon emissions as part of decarbonising plans that rely heavily on replacing fossil fuels with synthetic alternatives that are yet to be approved.
The manufacturer and other aviation companies face a huge challenge to cut their products’ carbon emissions. No existing technology can fly passengers across the world without producing tonnes of carbon dioxide.
