1 1 Lufthansa German Airlines Our commitment in reducing climate impact and supporting climate research Dr. Andreas Waibel Milano COP 9 – Climate Change Kiosk Dec 09, 2003

2 2 our contributions... reducing emissions... supporting science Our climate mission... Fact Dilemma Need Mobility causes consumption of natural resources and generates emissions. But nobody wants to abstain from mobility. Environmental impacts due to our mobility have to be minimized on one‘s best. The interaction and mechanisms of our atmosphere are manifold and complex. The human being interferes into this complex system without knowing exactly the impacts. There is a big need to explore the mechanisms of our atmosphere.

3 3 Air traffic emissions CO * H 2 O 1240 NO x CO SO UHC Soot * EI = emission [g] burned fueld [kg]

4 4 CO 2 emissions from air traffic can not be neglected – but are still a minor source 25% 23% 21% 15% 10% 2% 4% power plants households industry burning of bio mass road traffic other traffic air traffic source: DLR 1998, AEA 1998

5 5 NO x abundance at flight altitudes originate from various sources Source: Lee et al., 1997 NOx concentration contribution at 30-60°N and 9-11 km altitude

6 6 Anthropogenic radiative forcing – future development and aviation‘s fraction 3,5% 4,1% 5,0% 5,1% source: IPCC ,2 1,6 2,7* overall development normalized to 1990 *

7 7 Contrail Experiment (1999) What influences the formation of condensation trails? A modern Airbus A (left) of Lufthansa and a Boeing 707 (right) of the German Airforce in front of DLR‘s research aircraft Falcon. Lufthansa takes activ part in scientific climate research projects Sulfur Experiment (1996 and 1998) DLR‘s research aircraft Falcon behind a B of Lufthansa

8 8 Lufthansa takes active part in monitoring our atmosphere Since more than 9 years continuous measurements on each flight onboard of 3 A long haul aircrafts of atmospheric O 3 and H 2 O Significance: Cloud Formation, Climate Research, Chemistry (OH)

9 9 MOZAIC Operation Flights per year (5000 vertical profiles) 1994–2002: flights with O3/H2O instrumentation flight hours of O 3 and H 2 O data : 500 flights with additional CO 500 flights with additional NOy 200 flights with additional CO/NOy 5 Long-range Aircraft (A ) operated by: Lufthansa (2+1), Air France, Austrian Airlines, Sabena

10 10 Civil Aircraft for the Regular Investigation of the atmosphere Based on an Instrument Container CARIBIC 1,6 t as of May 2004 planed operating time: 10 years one of the new A delivered to LH O 3, CO, CO 2, H 2 O, NO X, NO Y, Aerosole, organic compounds A further long term project to investigate our atmosphere An European atmospheric research project operated by Lufthansa

11 11 Specific fuel consumption has been continuously reduced l/100pkm average specific fuel consumption of the whole passenger fleet in % reduction since due to continuous fleet modernisation

12 12 Lufthansa has decoupled transport performance and environmental impact... PKT % NOx + 75 % Fuel + 57 % CO - 4 % UHC - 51 %... due to continuous fleet modernisation

13 13 In other words... PKT % Fuel + 57 % More than halve of the growth in the past 12 years could be performed in an enrionmental neutral manner More than halve of the growth in the past 12 years could be performed in an enrionmental neutral manner  68 % -50% 0% 50% 100% 150% delta (%)
