Boeing, COMAC Expand Collaboration on Environmental Efficiency and Sustainable Growth

Boeing-COMAC Sustainable Aviation Technology Center to pursue mutually beneficial research in materials recycling, air travel for aging populations, workplace safety

ZHUHAI, China, Nov. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Boeing [NYSE:BA] and Commercial Aircraft Corp. of China (COMAC) today signed a new agreement to expand their joint research collaboration in support of the long-term sustainable growth of commercial aviation.

The two companies, which signed an initial collaboration agreement in March 2012, have been researching ways to improve aviation’s fuel efficiency and greenhouse-gas emissions reduction, including sustainable aviation biofuel and air traffic management (ATM) efficiency.

Through this new agreement, signed at the Zhuhai Airshow, the companies will explore six areas of mutually beneficial research through the renamed Boeing-COMAC Sustainable Aviation Technology Center. They will also continue to exchange commercial aviation market forecasts.

“As we approach the 45th year of collaboration between Boeing and China’s aviation industry, Boeing and COMAC are expanding our efforts to ensure commercial aviation’s long-term sustainable growth, improve its efficiency and reduce environmental impact,” said Ian Chang, vice president, Supplier Management China Operations & Business Development, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “Our mutually beneficial research with COMAC supports Boeing’s global effort to enable growth and partner to address challenges for our industry.”

“The two companies have enhanced mutual trust and understanding during five years of working together,” said Wu Guanghui, Vice President of COMAC. “The agreement signed today extends and will bring our cooperation to a new level, enabling the two companies to leverage their own advantages for win-win results that can benefit not only China, but also the rest of world.”

Research areas for the Sustainable Aviation Technology Center will include:

  • Technologies supporting sustainable aviation fuel development and assessing the benefit to aviation of using these technologies;
  • ATM technologies and applications;
  • Environmentally sustainable manufacturing, including enhanced recycling of materials;
  • Technologies to enhance the airplane cabin environment related to environmental stewardship and air travel by aging populations;
  • New industry or international standards in aviation energy conservation and emissions reduction;
  • Improvements in workplace safety during cabin and ground operations.

As they have since 2012, Boeing and COMAC will jointly select and fund research by China-based universities and research institutions. Their initial agreement created the Boeing-COMAC Aviation Energy Conservation and Emissions Reductions (AECER) Technology Center. Since then, the Boeing-COMAC AECER Center conducted 17 research projects, leading to an aviation biofuel demonstration facility that turns waste “gutter oil” into jet fuel and three ATM software prototype systems. The Center has attracted participation of 12 domestic and international research partners.

In addition, Boeing and COMAC plan to open a joint venture facility in Zhoushan, China, that will install interiors and paint 737s before Boeing delivers these airplanes to Chinese customers.

China is one of the world’s fastest-growing aviation markets. The Civil Aviation Administration of China has forecast that passenger traffic in China will reach 485 million this year and will reach 1.5 billion passengers in 2030. Boeing has estimated that Chinese airlines will need to purchase more than 6,800 new airplanes through 2035 to meet fast-growing demand for domestic and international air travel.

Melbourne Victory 6 – 1 Wellington Phoenix – Hyundai A-League 2016/2017

A hat-trick to Besart Berisha has seen Melbourne Victory heap more misery on a 10-man Wellington Phoenix after cruising to a 6-1 win at Etihad Stadium on Monday night to end Round 4 in the Hyundai A-League top three.

Berisha notched his 50th goal in Victory colours as he scored twice in two minutes – both from the penalty spot – midway through the first half.

Wellington were the architects of their own downfall as fouls by Roly Bonevacia and Dylan Fox enabled Berisha to have the hosts in front 2-0 at the break.

Despite having defender Dylan Fox sent off with half an hour to play, Phoenix pulled a goal back soon after via a penalty of their own, scored by Roy Krishna.

But former Phoenix flyer Marco Rojas ensured there would be no comeback, scoring twice – as well as setting up Berisha’s third and another for Mitch Austin – in the last 20 minutes to ensure a big win for the hosts in front of more than 20,000 fans.

While Victory has moved up to third after back-to-back wins, Wellington remains rooted to the foot of the ladder without a point from the opening four rounds.

Kevin Muscat’s side next heads up to Sydney on Saturday night to face the league-leading Sky Blues while Phoenix is at home to Newcastle Jets.

GOALS

1-0 Victory: Besart Berisha 20’

After Daniel Georgievski won a penalty after he was brought down by Roly Bonevacia, Berisha took responsibility from the spot and made no mistake, sweeping the ball into the top corner to keeper Glen Moss’ right.

2-0 Victory: Besart Berisha 22’

Barely two minutes after the first penalty Victory had a second as Dylan Fox hauled down Berisha. And the Albanian sent Moss the wrong way, stroking the ball into the same corner.

2-1 Phoenix: Roy Krishna 63’

Victory defender Alan Baro mistimed a tackle on Krishna, earning the visitors a penalty of their own. And the Fijian picked himself up and slotted it into the bottom corner for Wellington’s first goal of the season.

3-1 Victory: Marco Rojas 71’

A ball over the top by Rashid Mahazi sent Berisha clear, only for the Albanian to be disposessed by Adam Parkhouse on the edge of the box. But Rojas swooped on the loose ball, driving into the box and finishing clinically past a stranded Moss.

4-1 Victory: Marco Rojas 77’

James Troisi’s lofted pass caused confusion at the back as Jacob Tratt’s interception dropped into the path of Rojas who had the simple task of side-footing into an open goal from just outside the box.

5-1 Victory: Besart Berisha 82’

Rojas sprung the offside trap to race clear down the right before squaring a pass for Berisha to smash it in from close range for his hat-trick.

6-1 Victory: Mitch Austin 90+2’

A swift counter attack from Victory ended with Rojas feeding Austin, who produced a smart finish into the far bottom corner.

 

RED CARD

Dylan Fox 59’

The Wellington defender picked up a yellow in giving away a penalty in the first half and then copped a second one for another foul on Berisha as the Albanian threatened to break free just inside Phoenix’s half.
