  • Aviation aims at creating environmental awareness, inventing innovative ways to reduce air pollution, reduce the noise from airplanes, and burn fuel more efficiently
  • Aviation sector contributes to about 5% of the total greenhouse gases
  • Worldwide, there are significant efforts by this sector to cut down emissions through use of biofuels, efficient aircraft design, and optimised navigation
  • In addition, many airlines have started using more sustainable materials and adopted key waste management methods
  • Apart from these it also touches on air traffic management, which focuses on enabling aircraft to move more efficiently, eventually reducing noise, emissions, and fuel burn
  • So this holds a promise where people will be able to enjoy the convenience and benefits of living near an airport

Critical areas ingreen aviation

The main area of concern is to reduce:

  • Aircraft fuel consumption
  • Noise rate


  • Changes in the way airliners transit through the na¬tion’s air traffic control system
  • Changes in aircraft design, such as the use of lightweight composite structures and means to increase laminar, or smooth, air flow over aircraft surfaces, can increase over¬all lift and reduce drag
  • Changes in engine design or operation might include ultra-high bypass turbofans, open rotor engines, use of alternative fuels, or locating engines on the body of the aircraft


  • Demands of aviation industry cannot be satisfied
  • Feedstock availability (for alternative fuels)
