The EMEP/EEA aviation methodology
The guidebook provides detailed fuel consumption data for over 140 specific jet, turboprop and military aircraft types, and represents the foremost methodology for calculation aviation-associated greenhouse gas emissions.
Aircraft fuel consumption dynamics are differentiated by into associated with landing and take off (LTO) phases (taxiing, take off, climb out, landing) and cruising at altitude. This fuel consumption is converted into CO2 emissions by using a CO2 emissions factor of 3.15 (kg CO2 per kg fuel). This value corresponds to the CO2 emissions factor for 'jet fuel' specified by the IPCC (1999).
