Importance of Accurate
Modelling of Emissions — August 2022
Reducing fuel burn and carbon emissions is clearly one of the important challenges for the aviation industry, perhaps the most important. But calculating and measuring emissions, on a detailed flight, type, and airline basis, is a remarkably difficult exercise. In this article Skailark explains its innovative approach to modelling emissions.
Accurate and timely tracking of fuel efficiency is critical for helping airlines lower their direct operating costs through reducing fuel consumption and cutting carbon emission costs. Regulators need a reliable information source in applying environmental legislation. And for passengers the stated carbon footprints of competing services play an increasing role in choosing a flight.……
