Organic Gas Speciation Profile for Aircraft

You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page. See EPA’s About PDF page to learn more.

EPA's Office of Transportation Air Quality (OTAQ) and the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) Office of Environment and Energy (AEE) provided an organic gas speciation profile for use in emission inventories of aircraft equipped with turbofan, turbojet, and turboprop engines fueled with kerosene-based, jet-A fuel. The development of this profile was the combined work of both agencies, taking into account the most recent data sets available at the time.  EPA and FAA agreed to continue further development of the speciated organic gas profile as new scientific information becomes available.  Because this effort is a "living" methodology, air quality practitioners should verify that they have the most recent version of the documents (by date and version number on the cover) and associated speciated profile before preparing an emissions inventory.
