6Reen Aviation Conference

6-7 November 2014, Paris-Le Bourget

The 6R Green Aviation Conference in Paris on the 6th & 7th November 2014 at “Le Musée de l'Air et de l’Espace”, Le Bourget, adopts the ideas of a circular economy to promote the goal of a truly sustainable aviation industry. 

Like practically all products in this world – aviation is built with and consumes finite resources. Professor I.S. Jawahir (University of Kentucky) defined a new paradigm (6R) for sustainable manufacturing in 2006. Moving from the traditional 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) to add a further 3Rs (Recover, Redesign and Remanufacture) to embrace the entire (full) life- cycle of the product, from Pre-manufacturing and Manufacturing to Use and Post-use.

Many conferences focus on the “Use” stage of the aircraft’s life.This conference is about looking at the whole lifecycle – highlighting best practices in each stage and at the same time stimulating further innovation by understanding how actions in one stage can influence outcomes in others.
