Rolls-Royce claims: 30 percent lower CO2 emissions (but not in cars)
Speaking about the different sectors Rolls-Royce works in, aviation is the least flattering, because although aviation is responsible of 2 percent of CO2 emissions and planes use 50 percent less fuel per passenger, there is still work that can be done. When relating to their nautical business, ships are responsible for three percent of CO2 although they produce significant quantities of sulphur (SOx) and nitrogenous oxides (NOx).
Rolls-Royce is currently developing new gas turbines, claimed to be "more efficient, clean and silent," investing in fuel cells and in renewable energies, such as turbines that produce electricity from tidal waves.
