I need to find the equations for the CO2 emissions in the tier2 method for the aviation.

According to the annex 5 LTO emissions calculator, from the report 1.3.a Aviation, belonging to the EMEP/EEA air pollutant emission inventory guidebook 2016, the CO2 emissions are calculated with the CO emissions and the "CO2 per fuel". You have available that information (CO2 per fuel) for the general public?
I need that database for my degree work as engineer.
The report 1.3.a Aviation delivery a generic equation for the tier2 method, and i need only for the CO2.

Thank you, i'm watting for a soon answer
best regards.

CO2 emissions are derived from the fuel burnt by the aircraft’s engines. CO2 = Fuel burnt * 3.15.
How is fuel calculated? For the LTO part of the flight, the fuel is a function of the engine thrust * time under that thrust. Data come from the ICAO Aircraft Engine Emissions Databank that can be found here https://www.easa.europa.eu/[…]/icao-aircraft-engine-emissions-databank.

For the En route part of the flight, the fuel is determined by the performance of the aircraft as provided by the BADA (Base of Aircraft DAta) performance model. The calculation is made with the EUROCONTROL Advanced Emission Model (AEM).

If more information is required, we recommend you to contact EUROCONTROL directly at fuelandemissionsinventory@eurocontrol.int.

Kind regards.
