Within the global context, airports have significant impact on the global environment in terms of climate change. At a local level, even though noise seems to be the main concern over the last 20 years, air emissions, resources (energy and water) availability, waste and waste water management, ecosystems and land use planning constitute issues that are directly linked to local communities’ tolerance.

Article (PDF Available) in Project Appraisal 12(1) March Planning the Airport Environment. Airport and airport-related developments warrant special attention in the planning process in order to achieve the following objectives: (1) To take advantage of the impact of the airport on land development.

(2) To provide for quick and efficient access to the airport. It causes approximately 2 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions with the approximated expected growth around per cent per year. This is misleading though because most flights are taken by the wealthy, so in developed countries, the amount of CO 2 emissions caused by flying is higher, at around per cent.

Environmental Impact Assessment. Environmental factors must be considered carefully in the development of a new airport or the expansion of an existing one.

In the United States, this is a requirement of the Airport and Airway Improvement Act of and the Environmental Policy Act of. The Airport Environmental Programs help airports implement the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and other Federal environmental laws and regulations.

This includes airport noise compatibility planning (Part ), airport noise and access restrictions (Part ), environmental review for airport development, and the application of the. This specific relationship analyzes the effect that economic development has on airport development.

On the other hand, according to a study performed by Benell and Prentice (), in order to create a one person-year of employment, the average number of additional air-travel passengers must increase bybased on a sample set of airports.

An EMS provides an organized and systematic means of managing environmental processes at an airport, which can result in multiple co-benefits. A well-designed EMS allows the airport to improve management of operations that have the potential for environmental impact, and to bet - ter track and report on regulatory requirements.

The report states that overall environmental impacts from aviation have increased by 10 per cent for CO 2, 12 per cent for NOX (nitrogen oxides) and 14 per cent for noise since Looking ahead, in the most likely traffic forecast, existing environmental impact mitigation measures are unlikely to counteract the increasing environmental impacts as the number of flights in Europe are.

People and groups who object to the effects of airports on the environment attempt to harness these powers through political action and litigation.

One important lever is the process for issuing permits for airport expansions, by which airport expansions may be delayed, reduced in scope, canceled, or modified to include environmental.

Overview of Airport Environmental Issues In the next 15 years, air travel is projected to grow significantly.3 As a result, airport development and expansion projects will likely become increasingly important.

A potential challenge to the completion of these projects is community concern regarding airport e nvironmental impacts. Aircraft and vehicles at and around our airport emit a number of pollutants, particularly nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and fine particles (PM10) which have an impact on health and the environment.

However, our airport is not the only contributor to local air pollution – for example, air quality is also affected by M11 and A road traffic. Author(s) M.N. POSTORINO.

Abstract. Airports are a local source of environmental impacts that should be estimated and evaluated in order to promote the right development of these transport nodes. The development of any airport gives rise to significant environmental impacts, including noise disturbance, emissions to air, water pollution and habitat destruction.

Some impacts arise from the operation of the airport, others as a result of providing additional airport infrastructure. All have the potential to constrain future aviation growth.

Air pollution affects people using the airport, including those living nearby, and is a major contributor to global warming and climate change. The aviation industry is responsible for about 2% of global manmade carbon dioxide emissions, according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report, Aviation and the global atmosphere.
