  • CO2 dry ice pellets just a few millimeters in size remove dirt in engines
    of the week
    A clean engine thus saves up to 80 tons of CO2 emissions per year. Lufthansa Technik in Hamburg has now developed a globally unique process that cleans engines even faster and with less residue.
    Innovation of the week
    The new process is called Cyclean dry ice. A mobile cleaning system is backed up to the engine – no matter where the aircraft is standing – and sprays pellets of CO2 dry ice a few millimeters in size at high pressure into the turbine. On impact, the -78,5 (-109.3 °F) cold pellets release kinetic energy, removing impurities.
