Across the aerospace industry, strides are being made to curb gas emissions that pollute our air and negatively affect our planet. Key engine players have engineered more fuel-efficient and less-polluting turbofan and turboprop engines. Meanwhile, other manufacturers are building our aircraft-of-tomorrow with electrification in mind.
Based off data from the Air Transport Action Group, the global aviation industry produces around 2% of all human-induced carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Some aerospace businesses have already taken measures to begin creating carbon offsets. Crane Co. and Crane A&E is committed to being good stewards of our planet and is working to ensure we chart a path to a sustainable future.
Last year, our Redmond site’s integration into our Lynnwood headquarters not only helped achieve our future factory vision, it also greatly reduced A&E’s carbon footprint.
“From a sustainability perspective, the Redmond integration with Lynnwood provided a significant reduction in utility expenses, reduction in travel costs between sites and reduction of maintenance and depreciation,” said Jon Edgar, Crane A&E Group Director of Program Management.
The integration created important energy and water savings that help A&E become an eco-friendlier business. Further, A&E is developing technology around motor controls and power conversion to meet future industry demand that supports electrified aircraft.
