The central approach of SUSTAINair is to substantially increase the sustainability of the airframe value chain achieving a paradigm shift in aircraft manufacturing. SUSTAINair solutions are of synergetic value and bring about benefits during production, operations, maintenance and EoL aspects. While going beyond the 360° of the circle, SUSTAINair sets the recycling of aerospace grade materials and reuse within aviation in the centre.
DUE TO NEW UPCYCLED THERMOPLASTIC PARTS vs. PEEK SOLUTIONS
DUE TO ZERO-WASTE ASSEMBLY OF THERMOPLASTIC PARTS
TAKE-OFF GROSS WEIGHT
ALUMINIUM BUY-TO-FLY RATIO
TITANIUM POWDER DEGRADATION
STATIC AND FATIGUE SHEAR JOINT STRENGHT
INCREASE IN THE VALUE OF END-OF-LIFE MATERIALS
RECYCLABILITY OF CURRENT AVIATION THERMOSET & THERMOPLAST FRPs
UTILIZATION OF PARTS DUE TO CONDITION-BASED MAINTENANCE
The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) is in line with its mandate and objectives in an advisory capacity contributing to the SUSTAINair project, in particular, to provide advice on certification and regulatory aspects as well as risk assessments thus supporting the time to market acceleration efforts of new technologies.
The European Union Aviation Safety Agency is an Agency of the European Union with primary responsibility for Civil Aviation Safety. EASA carries out certification, regulation, and standardisation, and also performs investigation and monitoring. Additionally, EASA collects and analyses safety data, drafts and advises on safety legislation, and coordinates with similar organisations in other parts of the world.
External Advisory Board
The SUSTAINair EEAB will provide essential industry insights into the design and testing phases as well as multiplying SUSTAINair news and results.
The objective is to involve relevant non-aviation sectors to enhance cross-sector innovation and technology transfer. To nurture industrial symbiosis, the EEAB partners will gain the first glimpse and explore up- and recycling of recovered, high-quality aircraft materials.
