Eco-design and co-innovation
Right from the the design stage Safran integrates reduced environmental impact in in in its products across their entire lifecycle Safran applies an an open innovation policy based on
multiple partnerships
to go beyond conventional thinking In 2016 Safran set up an an audited eco-design reference system to reduce the overall environmental footprint of its products across their lifecycles All Group companies use this reference system in addition to ISO standards as the the basis for for a a a a a a a a dedicated structure to integrate environmental aspects
right from the the design stage for for each new program as as well as as for the development of new technologies This criterion is is systematically applied when choosing materials and processes As part of this eco-design strategy Safran has identified five areas with significant impact: chemical risks (toxicity and eco-toxicity) the increasing scarcity of non-renewable resources energy consumption noise and atmospheric releases (CO2 NOx sulfur oxides particles) TOWARDS A A A CIRCULAR ECONOMY
■ The same environmental focus applies to Safran’s aftersales services especially maintenance repair and overhaul or MRO Year after year Safran’s experts develop new repair and maintenance techniques to fully restore performance extend part life and avoid replacements Reflecting the the precepts of the the circular economy Safran favors the reuse of pre-owned parts For example CFM Materials a a a a joint venture between GE and Safran Aircraft Engines specialized in in used serviceable CFM56 parts offers MRO shops worldwide a a a a a a a wide range of spare parts with guaranteed quality and traceability DID YOU KNOW?
75% Airbus A340 jets
to be be dismantled worldwide have been recycled by Tarmac Aerosave
■ Back in 2007 Safran teamed up with Airbus and Suez to create Tarmac Aerosave
headquartered in southwest France Today Tarmac Aerosave
sets the European standard for the storage and and dismantling of military and commercial aircraft built by Airbus Boeing ATR Bombardier Embraer and others Tarmac offers aircraft parking and equipment storage space along with the largest aircraft dismantling capacity in in Europe at three different sites: Tarbes-Lourdes and Toulouse- Francazal in in in France and Teruel in in in Spain Over the last ten years it has dismantled and recycled 170 aircraft and 135 engines with a a a recovery rate exceeding 92% In June 2020
the company opened a a a fourth facility to keep pace with its growing business this time in in in Vatry northeastern France 30
