Rolls-Royce to fly Trent XWB with largest-ever 3D-printed part
New Materials Thumb
Rolls-Royce : 11 March, 2015  (Company News)
Rolls-Royce recognises the potential of additive layer manufacturing ALM for producing aero-engine parts, using metal powder melted by electron beam and built ultra-thin layer by layer into complex shapes. The machines are sourced from Swedish company Arcam. Additive layer manufacturing has been used to construct a 1.5m diameter and 0.5m thick titanium front bearing housing (FBH) containing 48 aerofoils. It is held inside a Rolls-Royce Trent XWB-97 engine.

Transforming food waste into graphene and renewable hydrogen
New Materials Thumb
Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) : 11 March, 2015  (Company News)
The Centre for Process Innovation (CPI) is leading a European collaborative project that aims to transform food waste into a sustainable source of significant economic added value - namely graphene and renewable hydrogen. The project titled ′PlasCarb’ will transform biogas generated by the anaerobic digestion of food waste using an innovative low energy microwave plasma process to split biogas (methane and carbon dioxide) into high value graphitic carbon and renewable hydrogen. The other project partners are: GasPlas AS (NO), CNRS (FR), Fraunhofer IBP (DE), Uvasol Ltd (UK), GAP Waste Management (UK), Geonardo Ltd. (HU), Abalonyx AS (NO).
