Aircraft Emission Pollution
Air transport has been one of the most significant sources of air pollution in recent years (BALAN & TIPA, 2011). The importance of clean air cannot be overemphasized, and it is the role of everyone in the society to make sure that they keep air clean and to prevent the atmospheric poisons from causing problems among the people in the society. The combustion of aviation fuel releases waste products into the atmosphere that causes pollution that will affect the lives of the people in the society. The governments in the world are doing their best to prevent emissions that may cause dangers to the lives of the various creatures in the world. According to Kampa & Castanas (2008), air pollution has various effects on the health of human beings. The author notes that the air is contaminated by hazardous chemicals that get into the environment through anthropogenic activities. Aviation emissions are part of the anthropogenic causes of air pollution that affect the lives of the people negatively. This paper assesses air pollution caused by emission from air pollution.
What is the Regulation on aircraft emission pollution?
Regulation refers to a directive or a rule that has been put in place by a given authority with the intention of guiding people on what they are supposed to do and what they are not supposed to do. It may also refer to the directive that is made and maintained by an authority. In the current research, the respondent needed to show the knowledge that he has about Regulation and its importance in preventing pollution and making sure that the lives of the people are protected by making sure that the life-threatening emissions do not find their way into the atmosphere. The respondent was aware of the fact that several regulations have been put in place to ensure that the aviation industry is environmentally friendly and that effective measures are put in place to ensure that the environment is well catered for. The respondent was also aware of the fact that a polluted environment would be a risk to his life, and a clean environment would be necessary for making sure that he lives better in society. The regulations that are supposed to guide the aviation industry and help the players in preventing the causes of pollution are published on https://www.transportation.gov/. There are several categories of rules in the aviation industry, namely the safety of planes, airports, and space, consumer protection for airline passengers, and the environmental impact of the aircraft operations. Several federal regulations are used in controlling the aviation industry and can be read at https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/CFR-2004-title14-vol1/content-detail.html. The rules cut various aspects in the aviation industry that include the plane themselves, the staff as well as the equipment that are used in the company. The regulations can also be used in guiding the air traffic and the airspace as a whole.
The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) is an outstanding organization that regulates aviation around the world and makes sure that air traffic control is done in the best way possible. The organization came up with the Air Transport Policy, and Regulation, which is a program is essential because it reduces the costs in performing its economic, regulatory functions. It also improves connectivity and more competitive business opportunities in the workplace. It is essential to engage ICAO in the regulation process. They will play an essential role in making sure that the aviation industry is run in such a way that the players in the industry protect the environment. All the countries have regulations that guide operations in the airports as well as their airspaces.
Tanaka (2015) assesses the effect of Regulation in the prevention of air pollution and the effects that it has on infant mortality. The author notes the fact that the Chinese government came up with stringent air pollution regulations which was one of the largest regulation scale to be tried in a developing country. The regulations have helped so far because the extent of pollution has gone down greatly. The Regulation by the Chinese government has since played an important role in reducing the infant mortality rate. One of the causes of infant mortality in the country is air pollution. Tanaka (2015) notes the fact that Regulation is important in dealing with cases of air pollution in society.
All the players in the aviation industry have a role to play in dealing with air pollution. All the players should be involved in the process to ensure that the cases of pollution are reduced. Planes are always in the atmosphere, and any emission that they let out goes directly into the atmosphere. Regulation may help in such a way that they protect the environment from the pollution that may come from the plane’s engines, the people that are using the aircraft for traveling, and other sources of corruption in the aviation industry. It is, therefore, important to find out various ways of coming up with regulations that may properly guide the aviation industry.
All the organizations and authorities in the aviation industry are becoming more environmentally conscious, something that makes them come up with various ways of protecting the environment from pollution. The organizations have been designed to ensure that the aviation industry is clean and that it does not contribute to the cases of environmental degradation that could lead to climate change. Harmonization of regulatory frameworks through the development of policies and guidance will play an essential role in the maintenance of the environment for the benefit of society as a whole. EPA in the United States of America has played a crucial role in Regulation that protects the environment, but it should be noted that the challenges are always there to block part of the organizations.
Technological innovation plays an important role in the protection of the environment as far as the aviation industry is concerned. The aircraft manufacturers and airlines are using technology to prevent the causes of air pollution in society. For instance, aircraft manufacturers particularly use efficient jet engines that use less fuel and give out fewer emissions that reduce the incidence of pollution to the atmosphere. The biggest technological innovation in the airline industry took place in the 1960s. Since then, the aircraft manufacturers have continuously improved the technology used in making the carriage not only to enhance comfort but only preventing the causes of pollution in the airline industry. The fact that many companies are continuously becoming more conscious of the environment and the regulations that call for the companies to be conscious of the environment, the manufacturers have been motivated to come up with technologies that will not only protect the environment but also protect people’s lives (Lee & Mo, 2011).
What is the impact of regulations on the environment?
It is essential to understand the importance of Regulation to the environment. Most importantly, it is necessary to understand the impact that aviation has on the environment. It should be noted that the planes fly in the atmosphere, and the case they release emissions, the effect will be higher than the other carriages that are moving on the ground level. Regulation plays an important role in keeping the environment clean. May companies have a challenge in following the regulations that involve keeping the environment clean because effective waste management prevents extra costs to the company in question. Waste management is included as part of the costs that the companies have to undergo. The costs are then passed to the clients in terms of the increase in prices of the services given by the airlines.
