NextGen CO₂ Sample Problem Analysis

Aircraft regulatory standards, or aircraft certification requirements with associated stringency levels, are among the set of mechanisms that can be used to incentivize CO₂ emissions reductions from commercial aviation. Setting such standards requires the definition and identification of a metric (e.g., gCO₂/km, gCO₂/(kg*km)), correlating parameter, stringency level, and scope of applicability (i.e., type of aircraft, reference missions, fuel mix). Project 30 seeks to develop robust metrics that objectively and accurately reflect CO₂ emissions at the aircraft and fleet levels.
