The primary industrial objective of the PLEIADES project is to enable an integrated approach for the eco-design of aerospace products.

  • Combining engineering, environmental, sustainability, and business considerations, particularly through the linking role of materials and processes.
  • Integration and use of available primary and secondary data throughout the process.
  • Better consistency, interoperability, and understanding of uncertainty across different levels of LCA.
  • Integrating with engineering workflows to enable practical eco-design.

A second important objective of the project is to enable Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) to provide more useful input and guidance to the product development process.  This includes using LCA to reduce uncertainties in early-stage eco design as well as to improve compliance with certain reporting requirements. A prerequisite for using LCA in this way is to improve its inter-operability with the development process. Therefore, PLEIADES will systematically remove the main barriers for cost-effective use of Full LCA in the product development process.

The PLEIADES project directly addresses Topic JTI-CS2-2015-CFP02-ENG-03-01 ‘Industry focused eco-design’ which sits within the Engines ITD, with Rolls-Royce PLC as a key stakeholder in the project. The call topic specifically addresses the requirement for industry focused eco-design tools to enable the evaluation of the environmental and sustainability impacts of a product during its design. The delivery of industry focused software tools, knowledge infrastructures and workflows needed for industrial eco-design is the explicit focus of the PLEIADES project.

The specific objectives, deliverables and milestones of the PLEIADES project also sit at the intersection of the Engines ITD and the Eco-Design TA of the Clean Sky 2 Joint Technical Programme where eco-design activities are coordinated in order to create additional benefit for the Programme through increased coherence, common tools and methods as well as shared know-how for the life cycle optimization of technologies, components and vehicles.

The project itself will create entirely new tools and data structures, building upon the existing commercially available solutions of the partners to deliver a more advanced eco-design capability for the aerospace sector to support the longer-term objectives of Rolls-Royce, ACARE, the Clean Sky 2 JTI and its stakeholders.
