ALIGHT will measure the improvements in ambient air quality. This will be performed based on the existing CPH setup for monitoring airport air quality (NOx, UFP etc.) and additional mobile measurement campaigns by German Aerospace Centre. The latter will focus on aircraft emissions including black carbon.
ALIGHT will allow differentiation between soot emission and release of volatile particles and, thus, is significantly extending the techniques of regular environmental monitoring.
The implementation of SAF and enhancements in ground traffic are expected to reduce the emission of particles and combustion gases into the environment at ground level and thereby provide significant health benefits.
