Shark Inspired Film Cuts Tons Of Carbon Emissions

Jo Borrás writes in CleanTechnica on AeroShark film, an innovation that could revolutionize the aviation industry.

The C3 Take
  • Lufthansa and BASF have developed an adhesive film that immediately reduces carbon emissions by increasing fuel efficiency.
  • Swiss airline projects that if it were to retrofit all of its Boeing 777’s with AeroShark film, it would reduce its carbon emissions by 15,200 tons annually.
  • Private sector innovations are key to a cleaner future.

“Lufthansa has also announced plans to roll out the AeroShark film on its entire cargo freight fleet of Boeing 777s as well. That’s ‘just’ 10 planes, but it’s enough to represent a savings of more than 3,700 tons of jet fuel and 11,700 tons of CO2 emissions, annually. What’s more, the AeroShark team believes those estimates are low, since the film might be slightly more effective on cargo planes that don’t have window openings to work around.”
