They carry us around the world, but aircraft also burn significant quantities of fuel and emit pollutants wherever they go. EU-funded E-BREAK has developed more advanced and lighter aircraft engine components that can withstand higher temperature and pressure. Lighter aircraft propulsion systems are also lighter on the wallet due to lower fuel consumption - and their environmental impact is also lower. Read more
