Understanding Airport Air Quality and Public Health Studies Related to Airports: An Update to ACRP Report 135

Communities surrounding airports have become increasingly aware of potential impacts to air quality and public health from airport operations. To help airports address the issue, ACRP Report 135: Understanding Airport Air Quality and Public Health Studies Related to Airports was published in 2015. The publication has been a valuable resource for airport practitioners who want to understand the science, uncertainties, and information gaps related to airport air quality and public health impacts. The publication provides an introduction to the topic, reviews ambient air quality standards and regulations, describes the state of knowledge, and summarizes the findings from numerous relevant studies. However, since the report’s publication, regulations and guidance have been updated, the science has continued to advance, and new areas of interest and research are being explored (e.g., ultra-fine particles, environmental justice, indoor air quality (including building material emissions), and benefits from new practices and technologies). As a result, an update to the report is needed. The objective of this research is to update ACRP Report 135: Understanding Airport Air Quality and Public Health Studies Related to Airports so that it includes the latest information on the impact of airport operations (e.g., aircraft, ground service equipment, ground transportation, and stationary sources) on air quality and public health to aid airport operators in responding to concerns about air quality at airports and in their vicinity.
