Publication Date 2012
Media Count 114p
Personal Author N/A
Abstract To help the industry assess and mitigate the contribution of ground support equipment (GSE) to air quality impacts at airports, ACRP Report 78 (1) presents an inventory of GSE at airports, (2) identifies potential strategies to reduce emissions from powered GSE, and (3) provides a tutorial that describes GSE operations and emission reduction technologies for use by GSE owners and operators. The tutorial is a user-friendly, interactive, self-paced, stand-alone tool that provides stakeholders a better understanding of GSE, their operations, and applicable federal environmental regulations and potential approaches to reduce GSE emissions. The tutorial is structured in three modules: GSE Basics, Emissions Reduction Approaches and Case Studies, and Converting to Cleaner GSE.
