ACRP Project 02-100 Pathways to Airport Net Zero Carbon Emissions trending idea Edited

Summary :

Research Field: Environment

Allocation: $600,000

In the summer of 2021, the members of the Airports Council International committed to reaching net zero carbon emissions by 2050. ACRP Research Report 220: Guidebook for Developing a Zero- or Low-Emissions Roadmap at Airports provides the information and resources needed for airports to create a zero or low emissions roadmap and addresses making the business case and working with stakeholders to set zero- or low-emission goals and targets. In addition, ACRP Synthesis 100: Airport Greenhouse Gas Reduction Efforts, assesses the state of practice and lessons learned in approaches to GHG reduction. These efforts may also offer opportunities for revenue generation, as initially explored in ACRP Report 57: The Carbon Market: A Primer for Airports (published in 2011). Yet carbon removal strategies have not been widely adopted at airports, and a key reason may be the challenge in identifying the best strategies for their unique conditions (e.g., geology/geography, land use characteristics, funding availability).

The objectives of this research are to: 1) provide guidance and tools to help airports identify the most appropriate net-zero carbon strategies for their airports that consider their unique characteristics, and 2) revisit the potential revenue generation opportunities identified in Report 57.
