  • Far-reaching technology for aircraft manufacture that pollutes less

    Cutting the environmental costs of aero-engine parts manufacturing, increasing freedom in their design and reducing fuel consumption and contaminating gas emissions are some of the benefits resulting from applying modern additive manufacturing techniques to the aircraft industry. In this context, IK4 R&D Alliance is participating in the ambitious European Merlin project led by the ...

  • Wings that waggle could cut aircraft emissions by 20%

    Wings which redirect air to waggle sideways could cut airline fuel bills by 20% according to research funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and Airbus in the UK. The new approach, which promises to dramatically reduce mid-flight drag, uses tiny air powered jets which redirect the air, making it flow sideways back and forth over the wing. The jets work by the ...

  • Industry on track to deliver green aircraft by 2020

    Industry is on track to ensure 'carbon-neutral growth' in the aviation sector from 2020, but strengthened European Union support for research and development (R&D) is vital to help manufacturers deliver the green technologies required, François Gayet, secretary-general of the AeroSpace and Defence Industries Association of Europe (ASD), told EurActiv in an interview. 'In 2000, not everybody ...

  • MEPs to debate putting aircraft emissions in trading scheme

    Plans to include CO2 from aircraft in Europe's Emissions Trading Scheme are expected to be backed by MEPs  when they debate the issue. Members are likely to endorse a deal that has already been agreed by transport ministers across the Union. It will mean that all planes landing or taking off in the EU will be in the ETS by 2012. It should add up to €9 to an average flight by 2020. Airlines ...

  • The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine Release Commercial Aircraft Propulsion and Energy Systems Research: Reducing Global Carbon Emissions

    The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine organized a committee to develop an approach for decreasing CO2 emissions from commercial aviation. Approximately 2.5% of global CO2 emissions per year are from aviation. While that is lower than other transportation and industry emissions, it is critical to address commercial aircraft CO2emissions due to the ...

  • Innovative IONICON PTR-ToF-MS technology deployed on NASA atmospheric research aircraft

    What is the quality of the air we breathe? NASA is trying to answer this question using satellite-based Earth observations. By the end of the century, satellite data shall be used for monitoring and predicting air quality, much the same as now for weather forecasting. To understand how air pollutants are distributed within the Earth’s atmosphere, NASA makes use of a new high-tech ...

  • Manned Electric Aircraft Market: Global Trend and forecast Research Report 2013-2023

    Electric aircraft serve the need for reduced noise, air and ground pollution and reduced global warming. They provide freedom from foreign sources of oil. They make new things possible such as helicopters that can carry out a controlled landing after engineering failures thanks to electric backup and leisure aircraft getting all their "fuel" from solar cells on the hanger. They expand the  ...


  • Unmanned aircraft to study Southern California smog and its consequences

    Using sophisticated unmanned aircraft, research scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego hope to assess Southern California's potential for climate change and better understand the sources of air pollution. Funded by the California Energy Commission, the California AUAV Air Pollution Profiling Study (CAPPS) uses autonomous unmanned aerial vehicles (AUAVs) to gather ...

  • Airbus completes first test flight with alternative fuel on civil aircraft

    An Airbus A380 aircraft has successfully completed the world’s first ever flight by a commercial aircraft using a liquid fuel processed from gas (Gas to Liquids - GTL) in the first stage of a test flight programme to evaluate the environmental impact of alternative fuels in the airline market. The flight from Filton, UK to Toulouse, France, lasted three hours. The flight was piloted by Hugues ...

  • Additives in Aircraft De-Icers Make Them More Toxic

    WASHINGTON, DC (ENS) - The U.S. Geological Survey, USGS, has been examining the relative toxicity to aquatic life from chemicals used to remove or prevent dangerous ice buildup on aircraft. Not the basic chemicals for ice removal or prevention, but proprietary chemicals added by manufacturers are responsible for the toxicity they observed, agency researchers said after comparing ...

  • Long-term exposure to aircraft emissions causes premature death

    As well as contributing to the greenhouse effect, aircraft emissions have an important impact on air quality and human health. This study, which quantified the effect of civil aviation emissions across the globe, suggests they could be responsible for 16 000 premature deaths every year, at an annual cost of over €18 billion. The air quality costs of aviation were similar to its climate ...

  • Metropolitan Washington Airports authority implements enhanced aircraft noise event detection

    Historically, MWAA’s noise monitors determined aircraft noise events by identifying noise levels that exceeded a defined “noise event threshold” for a minimum duration. However, as aviation technology advanced, noise events associated with quieter aircraft were not always conveyed well using the defined threshold. Consequently, MWAA sought an improved methodology to detect ...

  • Aircraft noise at night may lead to long-term health impacts

    Exposure to aircraft noise at night for more than 20 years could increase the risk of heart disease and stroke, according to research conducted around six European airports. Risk also increased for those constantly exposed to road traffic, but this may have been caused by air pollution rather than noise. This study, part-funded by the EU-project ENNAH1, investigated the possibility of a link ...
