By keeping engines clean, airlines and operators can improve fuel efficiency, reduce emissions, and extend the life of their engines. The savings can be significant – studies have shown that engine washing can reduce fuel consumption by up to 1.8%*, which can translate into savings for aircraft operators.
Assuming that an A321 saves an average of 59.85 kg JET A per sector, and flies 3 sectors a day, it would save 179.55 kg JET A per day.
In one year, the total savings would be: 179.55 kg JET A/day x 365 days = 65,535.75 kg JET A. OR 207,092KG CO2
