This chapter outlines the characteristics of gaseous and particulate aircraft emissions as well as potential technology options to reduce them. Reductions in overall emissions can be obtained by reducing the total amount of fuel burned via more efficient engine technology. Advanced combustor designs and/or alternative fuels may also produce less pollutant per unit weight of fuel burned. However, there are trade-offs that need to be considered when targeting the reduction of a particular emission.
