Aero Gas Turbine Engine Exhaust Non Volatile Particulate Matter (nvPM) emission baseline measurement and Modeling to predict
Invest in a design system for lowering nvPM.
Non-volatile particulate matter has been determined to be a potential source for GHG and detrimental to human health. Investing in nvPM reduction would not only benefit the environment, but help P&WC remain competitive in a market that is now demanding cleaner (lower emissions) engines on aircraft.
- Measure nvPM on P&WC turbofan engines;
- Report nvPM measurements to ICAO;
- Develop nvPM/soot models with chemical kinetics, soot aerosol dynamics and radiation transports.
