Low Emissions Core-Engine Technologies (LEMCOTEC)

Start date: Oct 1, 2011, End date: Jun 30, 2017,

The main objective of the LEMCOTEC project will be the improvement of core-engine thermal efficiency by increasing the overall pressure ratio (OPR) to up to 70 leading to a further reduction of CO2. Since NOx increases with OPR, combustion technologies have to be further developed, at the same time, to at least compensate for this effect. The project will attain and exceed the ACARE targets for 20 ...
