Clean Sky 2 is a Joint Technology Initiative (JTI) that aims to develop and mature breakthrough ‘clean technologies’ for Air Transport. Clean Sky 2 will deliver breakthrough technologies for incorporation into the next generations of aircraft from 2025 onwards. By spearheading European aeronautics research culminating in demonstrations of game-changing new vehicle configurations, Clean Sky 2 will enable the aeronautics industry to introduce innovations in timescales that would otherwise be unachievable. In so doing, it will drive environmental improvements, increase transport efficiency, and create jobs and growth for Europe.
Safran Helicopter Engines has recently developed and patented a new spinning combustion technology (SCT). This technology improves ignition and blow-off capabilities and enables combustor weight reduction, without compromising turbine nor combustor lifetime. This project is dedicated to further improvement of SCT. The partner will design, manufacture and test a more advanced low NOx and low soot/particles injection systems, which will aim at improving next generation of gas turbine engines.
