Description

TRB's Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Report 11: Guidebook on Preparing Airport Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventories explores a framework for identifying and quantifying specific components of airport contributions to greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). The report is designed to help airport operators and others to prepare an airport-specific inventory of greenhouse gas emissions.

Appendices A through F to ACRP Report 11 were published online as ACRP Web-Only Document 2. The appendices titles are as follows:

Appendix A-Reasons for Developing GHG Inventories

Appendix B-Emissions and Sources

Appendix C-Methods for Calculating GHG Emissions

Appendix D-Methods for Calculating CO2 Equivalencies

Appendix E-Inventory Development Protocols

Appendix F-Approaches Used in Airport Inventories Prepared to Date
