Energy Efficiency Description:

The Continuous, Lower Energy, Emissions, and Noise (CLEEN) program aims to mature previously conceived noise, emissions, and fuel burn reduction technologies to enable industry to expedite integration of these technologies into current and future aircraft. The CLEEN program will focus on more efficient energy use and advancing alternative fuels for aviation.

Climate Change Description:

The Continuous, Lower Energy, Emissions, and Noise (CLEEN) program is a NextGen effort to accelerate development and commercial deployment of environmentally promising aircraft technologies and sustainable alternative fuels. The aircraft technologies focus on reduction in aircraft noise, emissions, and fuel burn. CLEEN activities include demonstration of airframe feasibility and streamlining the approval process for alternative jet fuels.
