Seamless solution to Emissions Trading
and ETS Aviation
are delighted to announce an
to Emissions Trading Scheme regulations
that will greatly benefit their mutual clients.
This will come as welcome news to airlines
affected by the impending European Union ETS regulations
which require them to submit their first reports by the end
of 2010 (facing heavy fines &
possible loss of Carbon Credits if they fail to do so). The
regulations affect most aircraft that
take off or land in the EU.
Eddie Forrester (MD, Aerobytes):-
“We realised that the process of collecting this information
& converting it into the required format was an unrealistic
burden to place upon individual airlines.
Consequently, we have modified the
Fuel Monitoring component of our Flight Data Monitoring
(FDM/FOQA) system so that it can collect & store the
required information automatically.
More importantly, we have also
introduced new functionality so that this information can be
submitted to Aviation Footprinter
(An online system specifically designed to
support ETS (through data-management, verification &
The savings for each operator will
amount to several weeks of effort per year and they will
also be spared from having to develop their own, in-house
software solutions to meet the ETS requirements.
For Aerobytes users, this new feature
comes at no extra cost – it will be included with our
standard product upgrades.”
David Carlisle (CEO, ETS Aviation):-
”Our online AVIATION FOOTPRINTER
software and pre-verification support service already
provided most of the ‘solution’ in respect of ETS
compliance. We could
do just about everything for our clients except directly
collecting the underlying information for them in the first
So our partnership with Aerobytes
provides operators with an ideal method to be able to
complete the entire process with minimal effort.
FDM/FOQA software can ‘harvest’
the information and then submit it to AVIATION FOOTPRINTER
for the remainder of the ETS process.
AVIATION FOOTPRINTER checks for errors
and missing or potentially erroneous data.
It produces the Annual Emissions
Reports with the click of a mouse and the entire process is
supported by our own, in-house ETS experts.
As a result, we can greatly reduce the
administrative burden of ETS for airlines – at a time when
many airline departments are already overstretched.
Access to AVIATION FOOTPRINTER is
provided for a modest, subscription fee.”
Under the new regulations, regulators
are allowed to issue “substantial” fines for non-compliance.
Because of the potentially enormous
cost of CO2 allowances
and the value of the free carbon credits, the verification
processes will be much akin to financial auditing.
The sums involved are very large so
that the benefits to be gained from allocation of free
credits will be of fundamental importance to even small
For example, a smaller airline (5
aircraft) might have emissions of around 150,000 CO2 Tonnes
per year. The
resulting CO2 bill would be €4.5 million per year (based
on an estimated cost of €30 per CO2 Tonne).
However, the “Tonne Kilometre” report (based on 2010 flight
activity) might entitle the operator to claim as much as 80%
back in free credits.
This “Tonne Kilometre”
report must be submitted at the end of the year and must be
independently verified along with the associated “Emissions”
Companies who have not prepared
adequately could face lengthy and costly verifications or
lose out on significant benefits of free carbon credits.
