Bombardier has named the first research partners for its EcoJet project, which aims to reduce business jet emissions by 50 percent through aerodynamic blended-wing-body (BWB) designs. The Montreal-based manufacturer announced Wednesday that it has enlisted two Canadian partners—the University of Victoria’s Centre for Aerospace Research (CfAR) and Quaternion Aerospace—to collaborate on the EcoJet project.

Quaternion Aerospace is a research and development firm in British Columbia that specializes in the design and manufacture of energy-efficient aircraft. It provides consulting services for OEMs such as Bombardier.
