EUROCONTROL Method for estimating aviation fuel burnt and emissions

8 May 2017

This document describes the method followed for the calculation of the raw data that are used in the “1.A.3.a Aviation annex 1 2016a.zip” accompanying the joint EMEP/EEA air pollutant emission inventory guidebook 2016.

The raw data corresponds to the estimation of mass of fuel burnt and the associated masses of emissions that could be produced by a representative set of flights (aircraft types/engines), flying according to their most often used cruise altitude (or cruise flight level) a set of pre-defined distances called “reference stage lengths”.
