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 HAP emissions reductions by the use of ASTM-certified alternative jet fuels. The method should, at a minimum: 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 hazardous air pollutants (HAP) emissions; Address landing-takeoff (LTO), cruise, and full-flight emissions; and Be compatible with the AEDT model for quantification of emissions and air quality simulation tools (e.g., CMAQ) to model ambient concentrations of PM2.5 and ozone.
