The Path to Sustainability: Innovating Filtration in Aviation


Like many industries worldwide, the aviation industry must find a way to respond to climate change and reduce emissions. The EU, North America and several APAC countries have committed to reaching net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.


As the aerospace industry transitions towards sustainability, Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) could contribute to 65% of the reduction in emissions toward net zero. However, the current SAF production limitation forces operators to rely on traditional aviation fuel. As a result, OEMs play a crucial role in sustainability, particularly those in hybrid and electric sectors. While developing technologies, new electric aircraft OEMs must comply with standard Aerospace airworthiness requirements, ensure consistent performance and maximize reliability while maintaining aircraft capabilities. Maintaining or improving an aircraft’s air and liquid cleanliness with lightweight, efficient, and reliable filtration components is critical in enabling this.

Successful Solutions in Transformation to Sustainable Aviation


Pall stands committed and uniquely positioned to support the aviation industry's transition to sustainability. We partner with Aerospace OEMs worldwide, guiding them through the often-challenging requirements of this transformation. We focus on designing, manufacturing, and supporting the certification of a wide range of flexible, efficient, and lightweight filtration, separation, and purification solutions. These solutions enhance the performance and durability of critical systems and contribute to the industry's sustainability goals while always maintaining our commitment to safety.


  • Electric and hybrid

  • Fuel Cells


Electric aircraft operate in various environments (temperatures, humidity, particulate from sand or pollution), forcing OEMs to protect their cabin air and electronics from contaminants.


Pall offers bespoke, lightweight, environment control systems filtration to protect aircraft avionics, remove contamination (particulates, gases, water) from cabin air and reduce component wear of critical systems.


Pall’s filtration systems combine high-efficiency contaminant removal with low delta pressure, minimizing energy consumption.


Supporting applications

  • Cabin Air Filters
  • Air Intake Filters
  • Battery vents
  • Battery Coolant Filters
  • Avionics Bay Filters
  • Liquid Coolant Filters
  • Lube filter
  • Fuel filter
  • Hydraulic Systems Filters


Protecting the anode and cathode from contaminants in air and hydrogen is critical to ensure the Proton-exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell operates at peak efficiency.


Pall can provide lightweight anode and cathode water separators and air and hydrogen particulate filters, increasing fuel cell life, reducing component wear, and improving fuel cell efficiency by enabling unconverted hydrogen back into the PEM.


Supporting applications

  • Anode Water Separators
  • Cathode water separator
  • Hydrogen particulate filter
  • Ion exchange filter
  • Liquid coolant filter
  • Fuel cell air intake filter
