Goodrich explores next-gen fuel nozzles

  • 28-Oct-2009 01:57 EDT

Goodrich Corp. signed a research agreement with Rolls-Royce to develop the next generation of fuel nozzles for "lean-burn" combustion technology systems, which would be used on future environmentally responsible gas turbine aircraft engines. Goodrich also has been selected to supply Rolls-Royce with the combustion system fuel nozzles for the new Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engine program for the Airbus A350XWB commercial aircraft. All work will be performed by Goodrich's Engine Components team in West Des Moines, IA. Lean-burn technology can significantly reduce NOx emissions, improving local air quality around airports and reducing aviation's climate change footprint.
