The use of composite materials in the manufacture of aircraft

The use of composite materials in the manufacture of aircraft on a large scale could reduce carbon dioxide emissions to 15%.

Research conducted by a team of scientists from the University of Shiffilda, Cambridge and University Colledg London are the first to implement a comprehensive life-cycle assessment (LCA) of the aircraft, which are used in the manufacture of composite materials, such as Boeing 787 Dreamliner or Airbus 380And ekspropolirovat results on a fleet of all countries. LCA considers the manufacture, use and disposal of materials used in the manufacture of aircraft, taking into account the use of new technologies and the introduction of robotics. In the study we compared the results obtained by using conventional manufacturing technology and using innovative composite materials.

Emissions aircraft, made of composite material is more than twice less than that of aircraft manufactured from aluminum. Light aircraft consume considerably less fuel. During operation, the aircraft made of composites to produce 20% less emissions CO2, than conventional aircraft. Moving companies operating aircraft made of composites, 25 happen in the next years. That is primarily due to soaring oil prices.

A study published in the international journal Life Cycle Assessment - calculated that by 2050, composite materials used in the manufacture of aircraft, can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 14-15%, compared to conventional aircraft.

New aircraft commissioned up to 2020 of the year can still be used until 2050 of the year. The introduction of new technology in the production of aircraft will achieve a significant reduction in emissions to the environment. Given that global air traffic would quadruple to 2050, with the transfer of aircraft to composite materials, significant CO2 emissions could have been avoided.

The task assigned to the governments of the leading countries - to cut emissions by half by CO2 2020 year.
