Reducing Aviation’s Climate Impact with In-Flight Measures: ‘Flying low and slow’ and ‘Climate-optimised Intermediate Stop Operations’

2022-10-26T12:16:45+02:00October 26th, 2022|Categories: News|Tags: , , |

Global aviation and its emissions contribute to anthropogenic impact on climate. Carbon dioxide (CO2) has a long-term effect on climate over several decades, with the consequence that the CO2 greenhouse effect is independent of daytime, altitude and weather situation. Unlike non-CO2 emission’s climate impact, CO2 […]

Collaborating towards sustainable aviation

2022-07-20T17:03:43+02:00July 20th, 2022|Categories: News|

Sustainable aviation requires a collective effort to change actual operations with newer and most-efficient ones. The ClimOP Consortium knows it well. That’s why we have always strived to build synergies with projects with the same purpose: reducing aviation’s climate impact!

Throughout the years, ClimOP invested develop synergies with its sister projects […]

Testing Optimised Flight Trajectories

One possibility to reduce the climate impact of aviation is the avoidance of climate-sensitive regions, which is synonymous with climate-optimised flight planning. Those regions can be identified by algorithmic functions for nitrogen oxides (NOx), water vapour (H2O) as well as contrail cirrus, which provide a measure of climate effects associated […]

Strategic airline network planning: considering climate impact

2022-04-19T16:05:54+02:00March 3rd, 2022|Categories: News|Tags: , |

One of our research interests within ClimOp is to investigate the potential of combining strategic network planning and climate optimized trajectories in mitigating aviation’s climate impact from both CO2 and non-CO2 effects.

Strategic network planning is based on multiple decisions according to allocating fleet to routes that eventually form the entire […]

Preparing for climate-optimized trajectories

2021-11-30T18:56:27+01:00November 10th, 2021|Categories: News|Tags: , , , |

Aviation climate effects of non-CO2 emissions depend on location and time of emission. In order to mitigate aviation’s climate effect, the mitigation strategy of climate-optimized trajectories aims to avoid flying through those regions of the atmosphere which are particularly sensitive to aviation emissions (e.g. regions where persistent contrails […]
