Bangalore: British aerospace firm Rolls-Royce has teamed up with the Indian Institute of Science, and Britain’s Imperial College in a new research project to develop alloys for use in “greener” aircraft engines.
The research would produce cutting edge products that were both environment-friendly and built for aircraft of the future, British high commissioner to India Sir Michael Arthur said. The alloys to be developed by researchers at Imperial College,London, IISC in Bangalore and the Indian Institute of Technology, Mumbai, lead to engine components that could replace mechanical moving parts in aircraft, leading to reduced engine weight and increased energy efficiency.
