Objectives Discuss the different methods of environmental assessment. Investigate what methods are used to help control the pollution. Research methods and feedback the findings.
Case Study Based on LTN Airport What environmental assessments do you think they would use? What do you think they will be assessing?
Noise London Luton Airport's recently upgraded Aircraft Noise & Track Monitoring System is a comprehensive system to monitor and record actual flown tracks and noise levels of London Luton Airport aircraft operations. http://www.london- lutoninthecommunity.co.uk/environment/ (Accessed 12/10/2008) http://www.london- lutoninthecommunity.co.uk/environment/ How do you think it works? How have they developed this?
Climate Change LTN Airport do not have a tracking system but do acknowledge the issues. Has inclusion of aviation in the EU Emissions Trading Scheme. Working with the Carbon Trust. Will develop and implement an action plan with a view to proactively addressing CO2 emissions within our control. http://www.london-lutoninthecommunity.co.uk/environment/ (Accessed 12/10/2008) http://www.london-lutoninthecommunity.co.uk/environment/
Energy At present, 15% of airport-related CO2 emissions come from the generation of electricity and gas to meet the airports energy requirements. This is measured from energy used from electricity consumption through to vehicle exhaust emissions. http://www.london-lutoninthecommunity.co.uk/environment/http://www.london-lutoninthecommunity.co.uk/environment/ (Accessed 12/10/2008)
Energy and Aviation Each type of plane has a specific engine type. Once this is known you can find out the emissions from either the amount of co2 released per litre and multiply up by the amount used on a particular journey. Shearman J London Luton Airport 2008
Waste Management LTN are working to develop a waste management strategy for the Airport, in partnership with Envirowise. With terminal passenger recycling and retailer glass recycling facilities already installed this indicates the benefits clear waste management provides, not only to our businesses but also to the community as a whole. http://www.london-lutoninthecommunity.co.uk/environment/ (Accessed 12/10/2008) http://www.london-lutoninthecommunity.co.uk/environment/
Surface Access London Luton Airport published its first Airport Surface Access Strategy in July 2000 This set challenging targets to increase the proportion of airport passengers and employees travelling by more sustainable modes of transport. In 2008, London Luton Airport, working with partners, will deliver further enhancements to encourage greater use of public transport and will publish a revised Airport Surface Access Strategy. http://www.london- lutoninthecommunity.co.uk/environment/ 2008 http://www.london- lutoninthecommunity.co.uk/environment/
Environmental Management At London Luton Airport we are always striving to find ways of reducing our impact on the environment. It is also imperative that any environmental programme is supported by an effective Environmental Management System (EMS). http://www.london-lutoninthecommunity.co.uk/environment/ (Accessed 12/10/2008) http://www.london-lutoninthecommunity.co.uk/environment/
Environmental Management An environmental management system (EMS) is a structured and documented system you can use to manage your businesss environmental performance and responsibilities. http://www.netregs.gov.uk/netregs/275207/587836/1765868/?version=1&lang=_ e (Accessed 12/10/2008) http://www.netregs.gov.uk/netregs/275207/587836/1765868/?version=1&lang=_ e
Air Quality A programme of Air Quality monitoring Local Authorities What methods do you this are used to record the air quality?
Other Issues London Luton Airport will continue to develop policies and programmes to positively manage other important environmental impacts including local air quality, water resources, biodiversity, ecology and landscape. http://www.london- lutoninthecommunity.co.uk/environment/ (Accessed 12/10/2008) http://www.london- lutoninthecommunity.co.uk/environment/
Environmental Impact Assessment The EIA can be carried out for numerous reasons: To determine a developments impact upon a specific ecology or a single rare species. (Cooper et al 1998:152) The financial implications of environmental correction in order to calculate the net economic returns from Tourism or to retrieve some of the costs from the industry. (Cooper et al 1998:153). It is essential you investigate the EIA to understand what this is and why it is used.
