LOT Polish Airlines and Łukasiewicz – Institute of Aviation will use modern technology to calculate the emissions of carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides and carbon monoxide from LOT aircraft.
Currently, emissions from aircraft propulsion engines are calculated for the ICAO Landing Take-off Cycle – LTO. In accordance with the requirements of ICAO Annex 16, engine manufacturers determine the emission levels at the designated engine operation ranges and their duration at the test station.
In fact, aircraft flight phase times in the LTO cycle and engine operation ranges are different for each airport.
Thanks to the use of modern technologies and the scientifically supported method, the actual emissions of LOT aircraft will be calculated.
Cooperation with the Institute will allow the LOT Polish Airlines to determine the actual environmental impact of aircraft emissions and to undertake broader R&D (research and development) cooperation.
The Łukasiewicz Research Network – Institute of Aviation is one of the most modern research facilities in Europe, with traditions dating back to 1926. The Institute closely cooperates with global tycoons of the aviation industry, such as: GE, Airbus, Pratt & Whitney, and institutions from the space industry, including the European Space Agency. Strategic research areas of the Institute are aviation, space and unmanned technologies. It also provides research and services for domestic and foreign industries in the field of materials, composite, additive, remote sensing, energy and oil&gas technologies.
The Łukasiewicz Research Network provides attractive, complete and competitive technological solutions. It offers a unique system of “challenging” to business, thanks to which a group of 4,500 scientists in no more than 15 working days accepts the business challenge and proposes the entrepreneur to develop an effective implementation solution. At the same time, it involves the highest competences of scientists in Poland and a scientific apparatus unique in Poland. What is most important – the entrepreneur does not bear any costs related to the development of an idea for research work. Łukasiewicz meets the expectations of business in a convenient way. The entrepreneur may decide to contact us not only through the form at https://lukasiewicz.gov.pl/biznes/ but also in more than 50 locations: the Łukasiewicz Institutes and their branches throughout Poland. They will receive the same – high quality – product or service everywhere. The Łukasiewicz potential is focused around such research areas as: health, intelligent mobility, digital transformation and sustainable economy and energy.
