Update the Airport Construction Emission Inventory Tool (ACEIT)

ACRP Research Report 102: Guidance for Estimating Airport Construction Emissions and the Airport Construction Emissions Inventory Tool (AECIT) help airports and stakeholders better understand and quantify airport construction emissions and bring consistency to airport construction emissions inventories. The AECIT enables users to rely on default information about the construction process for typical airport projects. However, since the release of the guidebook and tool in 2014, both on-airport construction practices and modeling techniques have changed. For example, the U.S. EPA emissions models, NONROAD and MOVES, were combined into MOVES; emissions from typical construction projects have decreased due to improved equipment and practices; federal and state regulations have changed; and inventory methods have improved. These changes need to be incorporated into the report and tool to ensure they provide the most helpful guidelines and ensure modeling efficiency and representativeness. The objective of this research is to update ACRP Research Report 102 and the AECIT to incorporate the latest on-airport construction practices, regulatory requirements, and modeling techniques.
