Better Contrails Mitigation

Project description

Making planes’ white trails less harmful to the environment

Contrails, those fluffy white streaks left behind by aeroplanes flying overhead, do a lot of damage to the skies. In fact, they contribute to most of the climate impact from aviation. The EU-funded BeCoM project aims to better understand how contrails affect the climate. This will help to mitigate the climate impact of non-CO2 aviation emissions. The project will predict the precise location and time of contrail formation. Observations and measurements, as well as modelling and predictions through advanced numerical methods and AI, are some of the multi-level approaches to dealing with contrails. Recommendations for strategies to tackle the climate impact caused by aviation will also be drawn up.
