Complete the optional Tonne-Kilometre monitoring plan

Why is this important?

The Tonne-Kilometre monitoring plan is required to register for the EU-ETS optional benchmarking scheme. If you have frequent operations to, from, and between EU Member States, Universal® recommends that you take part in the benchmarking scheme. This will allow you to receive carbon credits as free allowances for your annual emissions from 2012–2020.

Important to note

  • The initial optional benchmarking period for 2010 has closed. The next benchmark period will be for operations in the calendar year 2014 (except operators assigned to Croatia which will allow benchmarking for operations in 2012).
  • A one-time Member State submission fee applies (varies by Member State)
  • Third-party verification is required for your Tonne-Kilometre report.
  • If you have few annual flights impacted by EU-ETS legislation, consider performing a cost-benefit analysis to determine if submitting the Tonne-Kilometre plan is right for your operation.
  • The individual allocation for each operator is proportional to the (reported and verified) Tonne-Kilometres that were flown over the course of the benchmarking year.

EU-ETS Aviation CO2 Emissions Calculators for Fuel Consumption

Play tutorial

ATTENTION: Universal does not store any data in connection with your use of the calculation tools it has developed to support your emissions-reporting obligations. It is your responsibility to retain all necessary emissions-reporting data for the time period required by each regulatory agency.

Read through Step 3a above before using these CO2-flight-emissions calculators.

Instructions

Fuel Consumption Calculation — Method A:

Weights entered in:
Enter fuel in tanks once fuel uplift for the flight is complete:   Enter fuel in tanks once fuel uplift for the next flight is complete:   Enter fuel uplift for that
next flight:
+
 
Fuel consumed:
TBD tonnes
Total CO2 emissions:
TBD tonnes
Instructions

Fuel Consumption Calculation — Method B:

Weights entered in:
Enter fuel remaining in tanks at block-on at end of previous flight:   Enter fuel uplift for flight:   Enter fuel in tanks at block-on at end of flight:
+
 
Fuel consumed:
TBD tonnes
Total CO2 emissions:
TBD tonnes

Fuel Consumption Calculation Methods

Method A

If using Method A, the initial reference point for determining the fuel consumption for the flight would be the measurement of fuel in the aircraft tank(s) immediately after the fuel uplift of fuel for the flight. After landing at the destination, the final reference point for calculating the fuel consumption for the flight would be the measurement of fuel in the aircraft tank(s) immediately after the uplift of fuel for the next flight. The fuel tank measurement after the fuel uplift for the next flight is the sum of the uplift plus what was remaining in the tank(s) after the flight. So the fuel consumption is the difference in the tank readings plus the fuel uplift for the next flight.

Method B

If using Method B, the fuel tank reading reference points are different in that they are taken at block on at the end of flight rather than at the end of fuel uplifts.
