Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Wednesday, 6 February 2008

Airbus has praised the launch of the European Clean Sky initiative to help reach ambitious environmental targets by 2020, set out by the Advisory Council for Aeronautics Research in Europe (ACARE), through technology.

"The environmental challenges facing aviation today are global and will require multinational and collaboration for the best solutions. Innovation, alternative fuels, research and technology are some key enablers and air traffic management is another," said Airbus President and CEO, Tom Enders. "Being an eco-efficient company is key to Airbus' vision to help the industry prosper responsibly, with less and less impact on the environment. Clean Sky is a great platform to continue down this path."

Airbus will play a leading role in many areas of Clean Sky including major participation on active wing technology, which aims at a reduction in CO2 emissions and noise.

The purpose of Clean Sky is to demonstrate and validate new technologies in large scale and realistic flight demonstrations.

The Clean Sky Joint Technology Initiative is one of the largest ever European funded R&T programmes with a total budget of 1,6 billion euros over seven years.

ACARE targets a 50% reduction in CO2 emissions, 80% reduction in NOx emissions, and 50% reduction in noise by 2020 compared to aircraft in service in 2000.
