Quantifying Emissions Reductions at Airports from the Use of Alternative Jet Fuels

The objective of this research is to develop a method to help airport industry practitioners estimate potential PM2.5, NOx, SOx, and hazardous air pollutants (HAP) emissions reductions by the use of ASTM-certified alternative jet fuels. The method should, at a minimum: (1) Allow users to understand the potential impacts of the use of ASTM-certified alternative jet fuels as it relates to PM2.5, NOx, SOx, and HAP emissions; (2) Address landing-takeoff (LTO), cruise, and full-flight emissions; and (3) Be compatible with the Aviation Environmental Design Tool (AEDT) model for quantification of emissions and air quality simulation tools (e.g., CMAQ) to model ambient concentrations of PM2.5 and ozone.
