- Fuel efficiency
Lower manufacturing tolerances with regard to the surface area result in higher efficiency and lower fuel consumption. The same applies to the weight of the components. Efficient and lightweight components not only reduce fuel consumption and average costs per revenue passenger kilometer, but also make a significant contribution to reducing CO2 emissions in air traffic. FACC takes responsibility for these fields of competence in the areas of development and production. Requirements either come from our customers or are defined and implemented in the course of our own development or optimisation projects.
Fuel savings in the Cabin Interiors division
Weight and kerosene savings through further development of the Classic Cabin (CC) to the Enhanced Cabin (EC) (overhead stowage compartments). The further developments within the Cabin Interiors division clearly show that FACC product innovations not only increase comfort and safety for air passengers; they also make a significant contribution to reducing weight and thus fuel consumption.
Materials and chemicals used
Safe and conscientious handling of materials and chemicals within the company is essential to ensure the long-term protection and health of FACC employees. Occupational safety experts, a REACH coordinator and environmental officers make a significant contribution in this regard through evaluations, instructions and advice, and are happy to address any queries you may have.
FACC relies on solvents for its manufacturing processes. Up to 80 percent of these solvents are now recycled as a result of appropriate measures. The remainder is disposed of by qualified specialist companies in an environmentally friendly way.
- Waste avoidance
FACC has successfully implemented a wide range of measures to avoid general waste. Where this is not possible, the company relies on extensive recycling or professional waste disposal services provided by qualified companies.
- Turning waste into recyclable materials
Through various measures, FACC has succeeded in increasing the proportion of waste converted into recyclable materials to more than 50 percent. As a consequence, these materials do not have to be disposed of at great expense, but can be used for other useful purposes.
