Seven aerospace manufacturers to work on 'green' aircraft technology breakthroughs

Seven major European aerospace manufacturers will work on technological breakthroughs to deliver greener ‘next generation’ aircraft.

Airbus SAS, Dassault Aviation, Eurocopter SAS, Liebherr-Aerospace Lindenberg GmbH, Rolls-Royce plc, Safran and Thales have signed a letter of intent in a Joint Technology Initiative (JTI) that works on implementing a ‘clean sky’ policy.

The Clean Sky JTI is a technological research programme designed to deliver improvements on the impact of air transport on the environment. A spokesman says: “It will deliver innovative technologies and solutions enabling step changes in the reduction of noise, emissions and consumption for the next generation of aircraft and associated components and operations” It will demonstrate and validate technological breakthroughs that are necessary to reach the environmental goals set by the Advisory Council for Aeronautics Research in Europe (ACARE).

ACARE goals to be met by 2020 include a 50 per cent reduction of CO2 emissions through a drastic cut in fuel consumption, an 80 per cent cut of NOx emissions and a 50 per cent reduction of external noise.

It also aims for green product life cycle design including manufacturing, maintenance and disposal.

The Clean Sky JTI has 50 per cent funding by the European Commission and 50 per cent from participating companies.

The JTI spokesman says: “This research project will be a flagship for Europe, enabling the industry to network with universities, research centres, SMEs, ....
