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.
The activities in this topic will be focused on developing innovative End of Life procedures for integral welded panels that are under development for new lightweight and cost effective aircraft structures. These panels can be manufactured using several Al-Li alloys, enabling welding technologies, as well as Cr-free surface treatments and primers. The development of new disassembly and recycling procedures are part of the activities.
