This article is devoted to two different generalizations of projective Boolean
openly generated Boolean algebras and tightly σ-filtered
We show that for every uncountable regular cardinal κ there
are 2κ pairwise non-isomorphic openly generated Boolean
algebras of size κ≥ℵ1 provided there is an almost
free non-free abelian group of size κ. The openly generated
Boolean algebras constructed here are almost free.
Moreover, for every infinite regular cardinal κ we construct
2κ pairwise non-isomorphic Boolean algebras of size κ that
σ-filtered and c.c.c.
These two results contrast nicely with Koppelberg’s theorem
in  that for every uncountable regular cardinal
κ there are only 2<κ isomorphism types of
projective Boolean algebras of size κ.
