AirplaneBoeing has expanded a partnership with Embraer to test new aircraft technologies designed to help minimize the environmental impact of aviation.

The U.S. aerospace firm said Tuesday it has tried more than 50 green platforms on 737, 787 and 757 commercial airplanes through the company’s ecoDemonstrator Program.

Boeing and Embraer plan to conduct environmental flight trials with an Embraer-built aircraft next year.

“Industry leadership in today’s world requires creative and global collaborations that ignite progress on hard problems faster than ever,” said Marc Allen, president of Boeing’s international business.

“We are pleased to continue our work with Boeing to support the long-term sustainable growth of our industry,” added Embraer President and CEO Frederico Curado.

The companies have opened a facility in Sao Jose dos Campos, Brazil, to research biofuel products for the Brazilian aviation industry.

Boeing also collaborated with U.S. government agencies, airlines and technology firms to demonstrate coatings that are meant to improve aerodynamics as well as software applications designed to increase in-flight efficiency.
