Some of the biggest names in European industry have begun a public-private partnership with the EU to produce greener aircraft.

Airbus, Dassault, Saab and Rolls Royce are all taking part in the 1.6bn euro (£1.2bn) "clean sky" initiative.

Half the money will be raised by the European Union and half by industry.

Maybe it is wise to add that this budget is spread out over 7 years and dozens of companies, instutes and countries. It´s common for governments to support basic aerospace research. NASA e.g. gets $0.5 billion a year for aeronautics research.

Quoting RedChili (Reply 2):

I see a great future for Iraqi Airways.

...and maximise recycling of old aircrafts.

And at the same time industry is moving from 75 years of 100% "beercanning" of old aluminum aircrafts to CFRP which can only be cut up and stored in old coal mines for a few billion years until the sun escalated to a red giant, burns it and poisons half of our galaxy.

Always keep your number of landings equal to your number of take-offs
