Centre for Sustainable Aviation

As residential areas increasingly approach the country's airports, there is a need to develop aviation to reduce noise and emissions. The Swedish Transport Administration and KTH therefore decided in 2015 to create a Centre for Sustainable Aviation (CSA).

The purpose being to create leading Swedish research on the management and operation of aviation with regard to the environment in particular noise. The hope is that the centre will be able to generate societal benefits both in a short and long term, and both in a local and international perspective. The Swedish Transport Administration's ambition is that research for a total of SEK 50 million will be announced through the centre over a 10-year period. 

In addition to noise, the center has also been considering gas emissions and plans to integrate a more multidisciplinary approach in a next phase.
