Marginal Environmental Impact

We built the Eclipse Twin-Engine Jet with an eye to the environment. It's extremely quiet: a full 40 dB quieter than the world's most stringent Stage 4 noise requirements. Smoke is released at a rate 50 times lower than regulatory limits. The plane is assembled using friction stir-welding, a green manufacturing process that produces no fumes. It's engine fire suppression system, PhostrEx™ is the first Halon alternative agent to be approved by the EPA and FAA in more than 50 years, and conforms to international treaties protecting the earth's atmosphere.

The safe, effective fire suppression system you've been waiting for.
The PhostrEx fire suppression system is the first new engine fire suppression system in 50 years. After a two-year development and certification program, it is approved by the EPA and the FAA. It is the only fire suppression system that meets the ecological standards of the Montreal Protocol, the shipping standards of the Department of Transportation, and the safety standards of the flying public.
