Emissions Quantification Methodology Report: ACRP 02-80 Quantifying Emissions Reductions at Airports from the Use of Alternative Jet Fuel Emissions Quantification Methodology Report Page 12 4.0 Pollutant-Specific Analysis In the following sections the detailed analysis undertaken to quantify the impacts for the pollutant species SOx, nvPM N, nvPM Mass, NOx, CO, UHC, and HAPs is presented. 4.1 SOx The SOx emission indices (EISOx, blend) of the conventional/SAJF blends are found to be directly proportional to the amount of sulfur found in the fuel burned, independent of engine type and operating condition, according to the following functional relationship: EISox,blend = %% â EISox,conv (1) where EISOx, conv denotes the SOx emission index for the conventional fuel. This relationship assumes that the alternate fuel contains negligible sulfur compared to that of the conventional fuel. This assumption is borne out by the literature. Hence the impact on SOx of the SAJF can be defined as ÎSOx = EISOx,blend â EISOx,conv = â %% â EISOx,conv (2) STEP 1 â Critical metrics are found to be blend% and fuel sulfur content. Based on available data from the State of the Industry Review, Î SOx is found to be independent of engine type, engine operating condition, and atmospheric conditions. The only dependency on the alternate fuels was its sulfur content with metrics sulfur concentration ([S] in %wt. sulfur, or ppm) and blend%. STEP 2 â The SOx impacts spreadsheet is given in Table 3. Table 3: The SOx emissions impact spreadsheet Alt fuel Ref fuel Engine Impact Ref # FT GTL JP-8 CFM56-2C1 EI_SO2 â 90% for pure FT, and â intermediately for blends. 6 HEFA/FT JP-8 F117-PW-100 SO2 â 50% for 50% blend. 20 STEP 3 â The emissions data indicated a quantifiable presence of sulfur, not only in the conventional fuel, but also in the blended SAJFs. Fuel analyses where available supported this observation. Step 3 concludes that any impact analysis should account for the total sulfur content in the blended fuel. STEP 4 â The following function was found to represent the impact of sulfur on SOx emissions. EISOx,blend = %% â EISOx,conv + ððððð% â EISOx, SAJF (3)

Using EISOx,SAJF = EISOx,conv â [SSAJF][Sconv], (6) where EISOx, SAJF denotes the emissions factor for the neat SAJF. Then ÎSOx = ððððð%100% â [SSAJF][Sconv] - 1 â EISOx,conv (7) where [SSAJF] and [Sconv] denote the sulfur weight percents for the component fuels, and thus the SOx fractional impact factor ÎfSOx, [S] can be written in terms of sulfur weight percents as ÎfSOx,[S] = ððððð%100% â [SSAJF][Sconv] â 1 . (8) There will be measurement uncertainties in blend%, EISOx, and [S], which will lead to uncertainties in ÎfSOx, EI and ÎfSOx, [S], as given by the expressions: Î´ÎfSOx,EI = ÎfSOx â ððððð%100% 1 + ð¿ ððððð%100% â EISOx,sajf-Î´EISOxEISOx,conv+Î´EISOx â 1 , (9) and Î´ÎfSOx,[S] = ð¥fSOx â ððððð%100% â 1 + ð¿ ððððð%100% â [SSAJF]-Î´[S][Sconv]+Î´[S] â 1 . (10) where Î´EISOx and Î´[S] denote uncertainties in measure SOx emission index and fuel sulfur content. Here the uncertainties are taken to be the difference between the impact factor calculated using the parameters EISOx,SAJF, and EISOx,conv shifted by Î´EISOx in such a way as to give the largest deviation, for the case of Eq. (5), and calculated using the parameters [SSAJF] and [Sconv] shifted by Î´[S] in such a way as to give the largest deviation, for the case of Eq. (8).

Emissions Quantification Methodology Report: ACRP 02-80 Quantifying Emissions Reductions at Airports from the Use of Alternative Jet Fuel Emissions Quantification Methodology Report Page 14 STEP 5 â In Reference 6 (Beyersdorf, et al.), a paper describing the results of the Alternative Aviation Fuel Experiment (AAFEX) campaign, the SAJF of interest was Fisher-Tropsch (FT) Gas To Liquid (GTL) and the conventional fuel was JP-8 in a 50% blend. The fuel sulfur content of the JP-8 was reported to be 1148 ppm, and the sulfur content of the FT GTL was assumed to be zero. However, SO2 was observed in the exhaust of neat FT GTL. A companion report for project AAFEX (ref 22) provided the fuel analyses for all fuels burned in the project and revealed a fuel sulfur content of 19 ppm for the neat FT GTL. The blend% of 50% used in AAFEX applied to Eq. (5) and Eq. (9) thus gives a ÎfSOx, [S] of -0.4917 Â± 0.0069, assuming a 0.5% uncertainty in blend% and uncertainties in fuel sulfur content of 10%. Using the Beyersdorf observational EI data (EISOx, conv = 2.3 g/kg; EISOx, SAJF = 0.2 g/kg) in Eq. (5) and (9) gives ÎfSOx, EI = -0.492 Â± 0.036, assuming a 0.5% uncertainty in blend% and uncertainties in EI measurements of 0.15 g/kg. These measurement uncertainties are conservative estimates of uncertainty based on measurement experience. To determine if the difference in impact factors between the EI method and the Sulfur content method is significant, the Error Ratio (ER) can be defined as: ð¸ð = | , ,[ ]|, ,[ ] (11) where ER < 1 implies the error bars in ÎfSOx overlap. For the Beyersdorf data, ER=0.83. Hence the impact factor relationship, Eq. (8) and (10), agrees with the measurement data to within experimental error. In Reference 20 (Corporan, et al.), a paper describing emissions from blends of Hydroprocessed Renewable Jet (HRJ) and FT SAJFs with JP-8, burned in F117-PW-100 engines on a C-17 aircraft. A 50% blend of HRJ with JP-8 was studied. The fuel sulfur content of the JP-8 was reported to be 0.08 wt.%, and 0.02 wt.% for the HRJ. Applying Eq. (8) and (1) gives a ÎfSOx[S] of -0.375 Â± 0.072, assuming a 0.5% uncertainty in blend% and uncertainties in fuel sulfur content of 1%. Using the Corporan normalized observational EI data (EIconv = 1; EISAJF = 0.55) in Eq. (5) and (9) gives ÎfSOx, EI = -0.225 Â± 0.181, assuming a 0.5% uncertainty in blend% and uncertainties in EI measurements of 0.3. For the Corporan data, ER=0.59. Hence the impact factor relationship, Eq. (8) and (10), agrees with the measurement data to within experimental error. SOx Findings The fact that the uncertainty in ÎfSOx, [S] is smaller than the absolute value of ÎfSOx, [S] implies that there is a statistically meaningful SOx impact associated with alternative fuel usage. ð¥ðððð¥, [ð] = ððððð%100% â [SSAJF][Sconv] â 1 . ð¿ð¥ðððð¥, [ð] = ð¥ðððð¥ â ððððð%100% â 1 + ð¿ ððððð%100%â [S]sajf-Î´[S][S]conv+Î´[S] â 1

Emissions Quantification Methodology Report: ACRP 02-80 Quantifying Emissions Reductions at Airports from the Use of Alternative Jet Fuel Emissions Quantification Methodology Report Page 15 Illustrative example: To illustrate the use of the impact factor, assume an airport has normal SOx emissions of 1,000 kg/year. Assuming 12% of the jet fuel used at the airport is blended conventional/SAJF at a 50% blend (50% blend ï¨ Îf_ SOx = -0.375 and Î´Îf SOx,[S] = 0.072), and assuming [S]sajf = 0.02 and [S]conv=0.08, the SOx emissions savings would be 45 kg/year (1000*0.12*0.375) with an uncertainty of 8.6 kg/year (1000*0.12*0.072). 4.2 nvPM Number For nvPM number we anticipated a similar relationship as that for SOx. At currently approved blend percentages of up to 50%, the reduction in nvPM number emissions is directly related to the amount of SAJF burned, thus the emission index of the blend (EInPM, blend), for a given engine and operating condition, can be expressed as follows: EInPM,blend = ð¼ â EInPM,conv â (1 â ððððð%) + ð½ â EInPM,SAJF â ððððð%, (12) where EInPM, conv and EInPM, SAJF denote the emission indices for the conventional and alternate fuels, respectively, and Î± and Î² are constants. The impact on nvPM number due to the SAJF for specific engines and their operating conditions is Îf_EIn = EInPM,blend - EInPM,conv EInPM,conv = ð¼ â 1 â ððððð%100% + ð½ â EInPM,ASJFEInPM,conv â ððððð%100% â 1 = ð0 + ð1 â ððððð%100% ð¤ðð¡â ð0 = ð¼ â 1, ð1 = ð½ â EInPM,ASJFEInPM,conv â ð¼ . (13) STEP 1 â Based on the limited available data from the State of the Industry Review, the observational data is found to be dependent on power and blend%. For use in the Aviation Environmental Design Tool (AEDT) model, an average value for impact factor, weighted over LTO cycle fuel burns, is calculated, resulting in impact factors depending on blend% alone. STEP 2 AND 3 â The nvPM N emissions impact spreadsheet is given in Table 4 below. In the spreadsheet Îf_EIn {LTO EIn} denotes the power dependent nvPM Number impact factors; FF*t denotes the product of fuel flow rate for a given operational mode and the time in mode as defined by the ICAO LTO cycle. This represents the fuel burned in the mode and is used as a weighting function to get an LTO weighted impact factor, Îf_EInweight. Îf_EInavg, weight is the average of all Îf_EInweight values recorded for a given blend%. Multiple values were only found for 50% and 100% blend percentages; Î´ denotes the standard deviation in Îf_EInweight values and is used as the uncertainty in Îf_EInavg, weight. STEP 4 â Development of functional impact relationships. Table 4 gives the Îf_EInavg, weight for two values of blend%, with associated uncertainty (Î´). The published references gave EI values at various measured engine power points. Linear interpolations or extrapolations were performed on these to get EI values at

The fit coefficients (constant, linear term, quadratic term) in the uncertainty weighted EIn impact factor equation contain uncertainty.

Assuming 12% of the jet fuel used at the airport is blended conventional/SAJF, at a 50% blend (50% blend ï¨ Îf_EIn = -0.48) the nvPM number emissions savings would be 5.73 x 1014/year (1016 * 0.12 * 0.48) with an uncertainty of 3.9x1014/year (1016*0.12*Î´Îf=0.325). 4.3 nvPM Mass For nvPM mass we anticipate a similar relationship as that for nvPM N. At currently approved blend percentages of up to 50%, the reduction in nvPM mass emissions is directly related to the amount of SAJF burned, thus the emission index of the blend (EImPM, blend), for a given engine and operating condition, can be expressed as follows EImPM,blend = ð¼ â EImPM,conv â 1 â ððððð%100% + ð½ â EImPM,SAJF â ððððð%100% , (17) where EImPM, conv and EImPM, SAJF denote the mass-based emission indices for the conventional and alternate fuels. nvPM N Findings The fact that the uncertainty in Îf_EIn_fit is smaller than the absolute value of Îf_EIn_fit implies that there is a statistically meaningful nvPM N impact associated with alternative fuel usage. ð¥f_EIn_fit = â 1.25ð¸ â 2 â ððððð% + 5.91ð¸ â 5 âððððð%^2.

(18) STEP 1 â Based on the limited available data from the State of the Industry Report, the observational data is found to be dependent on power and blend%. For use in the AEDT model, an average value for impact factor, weighted over LTO cycle fuel burns, is calculated, resulting in impact factors depending on blend% alone. STEPS 2 AND 3 â The nvPM Mass emissions impact spreadsheet is given in Table 7 below. In the spreadsheet Îf_EIm denotes the power dependent nvPM Mass impact factors; FF*t denotes the product of fuel flow rate for a given operational mode and the time in mode as defined by the ICAO LTO cycle. This represents the fuel burned in the mode and is used as a weighting function to get an LTO weighted impact factor, Îf_EImweight. Îf_EImavg, weight is the average of all Îf_EIm weight values recorded for a given blend%. Î´ denotes the standard deviation in Îf_EImweight values and is used as the uncertainty in Îf_EImavg, weight.

Îf_EIm is zero at blend%=0 with zero uncertainty, since the impact of alternate fuel is zero when there is no alternate fuel.

Emissions Quantification Methodology Report: ACRP 02-80 Quantifying Emissions Reductions at Airports from the Use of Alternative Jet Fuel Emissions Quantification Methodology Report Page 29 The fact that the error bars in Figure 5 overlap and their associated ERs are always less than unity, reveals that the Îf_EINOx function is a good representation for the EINOx impact factor data and is thereby validated. Illustrative example: To illustrate the use of the impact factor for NOx, assume an airport has normal NOx emissions of 1000 kg/year. Assuming 12% of the jet fuel used at the airport is blended conventional/SAJF, at a 50% blend the NOx emissions savings would be 0.29 kg/year (with an uncertainty of 0.47 kg/year). The fact that the uncertainty in the NOx emissions savings (0.47 kg/year) is greater than the absolute value of savings (0.29 kg/year) implies that there is no statistically meaningful NOx impact associated with alternative fuel usage. 4.5 CO For CO we anticipated a similar relationship as that for nvPM. At currently approved blend percentages of up to 50%, the reduction in CO emissions is directly related to the amount of SAJF burned, thus the emission index of the blend (EICO, blend), for a given engine and operating condition, can be expressed in a similar manner as used for SOx, nvPM N, and nvPM Mass: EICO,blend = ð¼ â EinCO,conv â 1 â ððððð%100% + ð½ â EinCO,SAJF â ððððð%100% , (26) The impact on CO emissions due to the SAJF for specific engines and their operating conditions is Îf_EICO = (EICO,blend â EICO,conv) EICO,conv = ð¼ â 1 â %% + ð½ â EICO,SAJFEICO,conv â %% â 1 = ð0 + ð1 â %% ð¤ðð¡â ð0 = ð¼ â 1, ð1 = ð½ â EICO,SAJFEICO,conv â ð¼ . (27) STEP 1 â Based on the limited available data from the State of the Industry Report, all the observational data is found to be dependent on blend%. For those cases where an engine power dependency was reported, a weighted average was used, where the weight function was the fuel burned for the ICAO LTO cycle, similar to the NOx analysis. STEP 2 AND 3 â The CO impact spreadsheet is given in Table 13 below.

Emissions Quantification Methodology Report: ACRP 02-80 Quantifying Emissions Reductions at Airports from the Use of Alternative Jet Fuel Emissions Quantification Methodology Report Page 38 The fact that the error bars in Figure 9 overlap and their associated ERs are always less than unity, reveals that the Îf_EIUHC function is a good representation for the EIUHC impact factor data and is thereby validated. Illustrative example: To illustrate the use of the impact factor for UHC, assume an airport has normal UHC emissions of 1000 kg/year. Assuming 12% of the jet fuel used at the airport is blended conventional/SAJF, at a 50% blend (50% blend ï¨ Îf = -0.348) the UHC emissions savings would be 41.8 kg/year (1000 * 0.12 * 0.348) with an uncertainty of 14.8 kg/year (1000*0.12*Î´Îf=0.123). Note: The functional fit analysis for UHC impact is confounded by the extensive scatter in the small amount of data available in the literature on UHC emissions (three papers (Refs 6, 17, 21) with 80% of the data coming from Ref 17). The observed scatter appears to be driven by not only blend ratio but also engine operating condition (Ref 17). As a result, the authors caution applying the impact factors for UHC resulting from the above functional analysis. The authors further recommend the pursuit of additional experimental studies on UHC emissions associated with blended SAJFs as a function of engine operating condition in order to strengthen confidence in the resulting impact factor analysis. 4.7 HAPs For HAPs we anticipated a small if not negligible impact. At currently approved blend percentages of up to 50%, the reduction in HAPs emissions is directly related to the amount of SAJF burned, thus the emission index of the blend (EInHAPs), for a given engine and operating condition, can be expressed in a similar manner as used for SOx, nvPM N, and nvPM Mass: ð¸ð¼HAPs,blend = ð¼ â ð¸ð¼HAPs,conv â 1 â %% + ð½ â ð¸ð¼HAPs,SAJF â %% , (37) The impact on HAPs emissions due to the SAJF for specific engines and their operating conditions is Îf_EIHAPs = EIHAPs,blend â EIHAPs,conv EIHAPs,conv = ð¼ â 1 â %% + ð½ â EIHAPs,ASJFEIHAPs,conv â %% â 1 UHC Findings The fact that the uncertainty in Îf_EIUHC is smaller than the absolute value of Îf_EIUHC implies that there may be a statistically meaningful UHC impact associated with alternative fuel usage. Due to the variability of available data, the team was not able to definitively derive a relationship between blend percentage and UHC emissions reduction that can be confidently used to describe UHC emissions.

Emissions Quantification Methodology Report: ACRP 02-80 Quantifying Emissions Reductions at Airports from the Use of Alternative Jet Fuel Emissions Quantification Methodology Report Page 42 The fact that the error bars in Figure 11 overlap and their associated ERs are always less than unity, reveals that the Îf_EIHAPs function is a good representation for the EIHAPs impact factor data and is thereby validated. Illustrative example: To illustrate the use of the impact factor for HAPs, assume an airport has normal HAPs emissions of 1000 kg/year. Assuming 12% of the jet fuel used at the airport is blended conventional/SAJF, at a 50% blend the HAPs emissions savings would be 2.2 kg/year (with an uncertainty of 5.3 kg/year). The fact that the uncertainty in the HAPs emissions savings (5.3 kg/year) is greater than the absolute value of savings (2.2 kg/year) implies that there is no statistically meaningful HAP impact associated with alternative fuel usage. HAPs Findings The fact that the uncertainty in Îf_EIHAP (0.046) is greater than the absolute value of Îf_EIHAP (0.006) implies that there is no statistically meaningful HAP impact associated with alternative fuel usage.

One of the most challenging environmental issues facing the aviation industry today is the impact of jet fuel emissions on the global climate. The use of sustainable alternative jet fuels (SAJF) to reduce aircraft emissions will become significantly more important in coming years. Capturing the air quality benefits in a way that is useful to airports requires understanding how SAJF reduce pollutant emissions, quantifying the reduction, and demonstrating the impact through an easy-to-use tool that airports can apply to their emissions inventories.

ACRP Web-Only Document 41: Alternative Jet Fuels Emissions: Quantification Methods Creation and Validation Report represents the second phase of this ACRP work. The first phase provided an understanding of how SAJF impacts aircraft emissions. This phase analyzes the data compiled in the report to quantify SAJF emission impacts.

Results of this analysis were subsequently used to develop a simplified tool that will allow airports to easily estimate emission reductions from use of SAJF at their airport. The Alternative Jet Fuel Assessment Tool and the Sustainable Alternative Jet Fuels and Emissions Reduction Fact Sheet are the two key products from ACRP 02-80.
