Aero Engine Craft Pvt Ltd
The first generation of environment-friendly contrail-free aircraft engines
Aero Engine Craft Private Limited is developing the first generation of environment-friendly contrail-free aircraft engines for the global aviation industry. The product aims to address aviation induced global warming and climate change due to contrails; the most abundant non-carbon jet engine emission in the atmosphere from aircraft during flight. Aviation is the only industry operating in the sky. Contrails are responsible for 50 % of the global warming in the atmosphere due to Aviation. Contrails form artificial clouds that contribute 5 times more than carbon dioxide to global warming in the sky and have covered 0.2 percent of the earth's atmosphere at present. The first scaled down prototype version of the engine of our revolutionary patented technology has been completed and is currently in the testing phase. According to standard Technology Readiness Level (TRL), we are currently at TRL 5, hoping to approach TRL 6 in the near future.
Our business is based on a disruptive technology. The product is an add-on turbo-machinery that can be integrated into in-service as well as pre-sales conventional
engines as a modular attachment. Once retrofitted, it processes the exhaust emissions to convert its water vapor content into liquid water so as to eliminate the source of contrail formation. The water recovered can be stored on board an aircraft and later released as rainfall prior to landing. Airlines can sell artificial rainfall to local governments to generate revenue. This development has been achieved through a modest seed money investment from Pakistan. We are now seeking an immediate investment of 1 million US $ (pre-Series A) and a total investment of 7 million US$ (Series A) for the commercial launch of this technology at TRL 9 by the year 2025.
