Flightman EFB gets carbon emission monitoring application

3rd June 2009 - 17:48 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


AMT has announced the release of the new Flightman Carbon Emission Monitoring application as an optional extension to the Flightman Fuel Performance Analysis module.

The European Union’s Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS), requires the reporting of emissions and tonne-kilometre data on aviation activities. All airlines flying in or out of EU airports will be obliged to submit a monitoring plan prior to the start of the trading period commencing in 2013. AMT claims to be the first EFB software supplier in the world to enable airlines to conform to the EU requirements and to provide a complete reporting and compliance solution.

The Flightman Carbon Emission Monitoring application will collect, record and analyse all relevant levels of carbon emissions and usage data in near real time. The information will be available for analysis and can also be integrated with an airline’s ground-based system.

The application will provide airlines with real-time management reporting of carbon emissions. This will allow airlines to track their CO2 emissions and compare actual emissions and total year-to-date emissions against their quota. As a result, it will allow airlines to optimise their buying and selling of credits on an ongoing basis using real-time data, enabling them to efficiently exploit price fluctuations in the commodities market for CO2 credits.

“Once the scheme comes into effect, every airline flying to or from EU airports will have to report on their level of emissions and tonne kilometre data. It is imperative that airlines can track their actual usage in real time allowing them to rapidly respond to variations in their CO2 credit requirements,” commented Joe McGoldrick, CEO of AMT.
