At the recent 2019 Royal Aeronautical Society awards ceremony, Dr James Taylor, a research fellow at the Whittle Laboratory was awarded a Bronze Medal for his advances in jet engine technology, which could eventually save up to 2.2million tonnes of CO2 emissions each year.
His discoveries were described by Professor Rob Miller, Director of the Whittle Laboratory, as ‘major break-throughs’.
Dr James Taylor said: “We have to understand more about the science of jet engines in order to create the sustainable designs of the future. Tackling these challenges in aviation is truly inspiring, with a focus on greater efficiency, lower emissions and less waste. I'm honoured to receive this award from the RAeS.”
