ABSTRACT FOR 12th WORLD CONFERENCE ON TRANSPORT RESEARCH Estimation of historical aviation CO2 emissions A. Benito (Polytechnic University of Madrid), R. Herranz and A. Blanch (Innaxis Institute) Contact address: Dr. Arturo Benito Head of Air Transport Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenieros Aeronáuticos Plaza del Cardenal Cisneros 3, 28040 Madrid ¿ Spain Ph. +34913366316, fax: +34913366321, e-mail: abenito@aero.upm.es The European Directive 2008/101/EC, including aviation in the European Emissions Trading System (ETS), was approved on November 18, 2008, defining the main features of the system to be enter into force starting 1st of January 2012. The aim of the rule is to keep CO2 emitted by all operators landing and taking off Europeans airports at the level of a predefined base year. This base year emission level is the average of CO2 emissions on the 2004, 2005 and 2006 years. This raises the problem of calculating emissions made in the past and verify the level of accuracy of the result. This paper tries to discuss the different alternatives of modeling the emissions and covering the existing data gaps while keeping the calculation within a reasonable level of accuracy. Some improvements with respect to existing methodologies are suggested in order to improve the process of working with a huge data base of several million flights, as EUROCONTROL uses for emission inventory. A methodology to cover data gap and calculate the magnitude of them is also proposed. The last part of the paper advise on ways of action in case of changes in the geographical scope of the problem either by increasing the EU members or by building agreements with other countries with similar ETS mechanisms.
