Boeing, ITU launch collaboration in aerospace technology research

  • 22-Feb-2013 09:10 EST

Boeing and Istanbul Technical University (ITU) reached an agreement to launch joint research and development programs. In addition, Boeing and ITU announced their first joint project: a one-year effort to research and develop an advanced air-filtration system to enhance air quality for passengers in commercial airplane cabins. The environmental control system in today’s commercial airplanes minimizes concentrations of chemical contaminants to extremely low levels. In their research, Boeing and ITU will explore the effectiveness of specially treated nano-fibers to further remove volatile organic compounds from the airplane cabin. Boeing has maintained a long-standing, mutually beneficial relationship with Turkey for nearly 70 years. It currently provides aircraft and services to Turkish commercial and defense customers and is a partner of the Turkish aerospace industry.
