To develop carbon offset methodologies for both commercial and general aviation airports that generate revenue.
Conduct research on airport noise and emissions regulations,
requirements, programs in place at U.S. airports, including the impetus
for each, legal authority and impact.
We propose an ACRP guidebook and associated tools to help airports plan and implement EV charging stations. Specific topics of the guidebook could include: station siting, codes and standards, costs and benefits, pricing electricity use, payment systems, future-proofing investments, ADA requirements, signage, and incorporation with airport emission goals and airport master plan.
The proposed work will provide a synthesis on the experiences of airport operators with regard to integrating the current alternative jet fuel into the airport fuel setting.
GA Airports face a beneficial at the same time potentially costly decisions to support electric aircraft at their airports in the next 2-4 years. This project will equip airports with rigorous guidance to understand the environmental benefits of electric aviation for airports to evaluate when they start to consider investing in electric charging infrastructure.
Create a data standard for aircraft ground operations and a tool to calculate detailed summaries of aircraft taxi times and flows from this aircraft vehicle location data
This project would deploy and evaluate airside automated mowing.
Develop a simplified airport emissions inventory tool for criteria pollutants.
To produce a guidance document that presents airports with their options for various environmental certification and accreditation programs and provides detailed yet easy-to-follow methodology on how to obtain them.
