Rendezvous – The Aerospace Industry and The Environment
Pune, Feb 2016 : Our first rendezvous session for 2016 kicked off with a highly informative presentation on the “The Aerospace Industry and the Environment” Dr. Sachin Pawar Post-Doctoral research scientist at the Tomsk Polytechnic University in Russia was the presenter.
He gave the audience a detailed insight into the chemicals and material used in aviation engineering, where it is derived from and it life-span. It is no strange argument that the Aerospace industry has several harmful causes to the environment. The release of harmful gases, usage of chemical resources and high consumption of energy are an evident threat to our ecosystem. Extensive knowledge of material currently used in aerospace engineering can help find alternatives which are far more environment friendly.
The discussion ended in the acceptance that the construction of airplanes cannot be made 100% environment friendly, however steps can be taken to minimise its harmful effects to the environment.
