Fuel & Carbon Solutions - GE Aviation

GE is leading the next wave of productivity revolution with its "industrial internet" solutions that will transform global industrial. One such solution is GE's Fuel & Carbon Solutions.

Through a comprehensive, collaborative approach, GE Fuel & Carbon Solutions goes beyond the powerplant to provide airlines with insight into their operations, policies and processes. Our experts will work with our customers team to identify and select fuel savings projects, implementation and ongoing support to ensure fuel savings are sustainable.

GE Aviation's Fuel & Carbon Solutions uses proprietary algorithms to evaluate airline operations data and identify opportunities that could reduce fuel consumption by more than 2 percent. If an average-sized airline (70 aircraft, $1 billion annual fuel costs) implemented Fuel & Carbon Solutions to achieve 2 percent improvement in fuel consumption, their annual fuel expenditure would decrease by $20 million and reduce 60 metric tons of CO2 emissions - which is equivalent to removing more than 10,000 passenger vehicles from the road or planting more than 1.3 million trees.
