Rolls-Royce Abandons Direct Air Capture Project
According to the most recent Roll Royce news, the company has dismantled the team working on its Direct Air Capture (DAC) project. As per Sky News, the CEO is going to restructure the company’s carbon capture operations.
In other news, analysts at Jefferies believe that the upper range of Rolls Royce’s guidance is well within the company’s reach. The analysts cited a recovery in flying hours and a boost from cost savings as major reasons for an increased cash flow. The mid-term cash flow of the British aviation giant currently stands at £2 billion. The strong financials will put a positive effect on Rolls Royce share price positively in the coming months.
