Clean Sky project to investigate low-carbon aviation

Clean Sky project to investigate low-carbon aviation
A new European research initiative has launched to form plans for environmentally sustainable air travel, it has emerged.

The Clean Sky project will be made up of a number of public and private partners, including research centres, universities and large and small industry bodies.

According to the Guardian, the €1.6 billion (£1.19 billion) research programme will run for six years and will focus on development areas including energy efficient engines, low-weight aircraft and rotor blades.

The newspaper reported that in the European Union, aircraft produce around three per cent of all carbon emissions.

"The aerospace industry is highly aware of its environmental responsibilities and over the last few decades has contributed to a drastic reduction in both emissions and noise," said Marc Ventre, chairman of Clean Sky's provisional executive committee.

According to Captain Mervyn Granshaw of the British Air Line Pilots Association, clean engine technology has reduced airline exhaust emissions by 90 per cent in the past 40 years.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18457435-ADNFCR
