European low emission combustion technology in aero-engines

European low emission combustion technology in aero-engines

Objective

European companies are pooling their resources to develop commercially viable low emissions combustion systems and ELECT-AE will provide the impetus to bring together the key engine manufacturers and research establishments to enable this. The development of a concerted research strategy involves many complex interactions, and the continuous improvement of the corresponding perspective and processes will finally provide significant gearing. Timescales for the development of aero-engine combustors are long. There is a clear vision and forecast of environmental needs. The ambitious ACARE targets, especially the demand for 80% reduction of NOx emissions from aviation, require very well focused and balanced RTD initiatives for the near future to prepare the technology for a successful implementation of a new generation of aero-engine combustors and therefore a highly integrated research strategy platform. The proposed CA "European Low Emission Combustion Technology in Aero-Engines" is dedicated to the support of the implementation of the ACARE goals as formulated in their "Vision 2020" document, i.e. strengthening the competitiveness of the European jet engine manufacturers and diminution of the environmental impact of civil aviation with regard to emissions and thus generating economical and ecological benefits for European Society. Therefore targets have been developed for this CA, designed to support the establishing a research strategy in respect to actual measures and actions in the context of combustion technology for low emission of pollutants: - Strategy on How-To-Do technology development. - Integration & strengthening of the European Research Area. - Enhance exploitation in Europe. - Dissemination of European research results and exchange of information in Europe. - Search and identification of appropriate SMEs and - capable research partners in the EU and from Candidate Countries.
