A Quebec University is partnering with an international aviation, defence and space R&D business on development of sustainable aero-propulsion systems.

Francois Garnier, a researcher at École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS) is teaming up with Safran to develop a system that will reduce fine and ultrafine particle emissions from aircraft engines at their source.

Thanks to the Safran Industrial Research Chair on the Development of Sustainable Aero-Propulsion Systems, inaugurated on December 5th at ÉTS, Professor Garnier will work with Safran, a major aviation industry supplier, to design cleaner aircraft engines.

"To create cleaner engines, we must fully understand the physical and chemical processes that result in the formation of polluting emissions, both in the engine components and the propulsive jet," says Garnier. His research team will develop models to better identify the dynamics of aerosols and their gaseous precursors. Experimental data will be used to calibrate the models for the best possible representation of reality.

The world aerospace industry, through the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), has committed to reducing its environmental footprint. Several research projects directed by ÉTS aeronautics researchers focus on various fronts identified by ICAO, such as biofuels, the design of more fuel efficient engines and of electric and hybrid propulsion systems, reduction of aircraft mass and improved management of the various phases of flight.
