ACRP 10-26 generated a potentially unprecedented level of media and government interest in a TRB project including coverage in CNBC and a formal progress inquiry from Congress. Microgrids... more »
Conduct an industry survey of the benefits and costs associated with an Airport Noise and Operations Monitoring System
The Guidebook for Environmental Management of PFAS at Airports will provide airport managers with a comprehensive yet practical resource for managing the environmental risks of polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in water, soil, and wastewater at and near the airport.
Energy vectors are a means of transporting and storing energy from place and time of availability to a place and time of utilization. The proposed work aims to address the newly emerging forms of energy vectors to support airport operations' energy needs
Update the report to provide airports with the latest regulatory requirements, best practices, case studies, etc. for improving environmental management at small airports.
The objective is to update the guidance and software for calculating airport construction emissions in order to:
• Incorporate the latest construction practices and regulatory requirements.
• Calculate emissions through the latest version of MOVES.
• Integrate applicable modifications to ACRP Report 102 and the Airport Construction Emissions Inventory Tool (ACEIT)
The objective of this research is to develop guidance for airports to quantitatively identify the contributions of airfield pavement deicers to environmentally relevant characteristics of stormwater discharges, such as COD and BOD.
Conduct research into cost effective strategies for periodic monitoring of airspace surfaces such as TERPS 20:1 surfaces to ensure they remain clear of obstructions. Particularly at smaller rural airports that may not have staff, zoning, or significant infrastructure that would otherwise make these issues easier to manage.
