Abstract
Aircraft gas emissions directly affect the Earth’s ecosystem and human health. Environmental concerns have caused international treaties to be signed with the purpose of reducing gas emissions. Aircraft gas emissions are a direct result of fuel consumption. In order to comply with regulations, air carriers have developed and implemented fuel efficiency programmes which contain methods to reduce fuel consumption, thus gas emissions as well. Electric taxi is a new technology that can improve fuel efficiency and reduce gas emissions on the ground. There are currently two electric taxi systems in existence, but none of them has been granted certification for commercial use yet. A model was developed in the thesis to analyse the effect of electric taxi on fuel consumption and aircraft gas emissions. Using fuel consumption and taxi time data provided by Croatia Airlines it was found that electric taxi could save about 60% of fuel during taxi operations, and could reduce gas emissions by approximately the same amount, when compared to all-engine taxi.

Emisije plinova zrakoplova izravno utječu na Zemljin ekosustav i zdravlje ljudi. Ekološka pitanja uzrokovala su donošenje međunarodnih ugovora koji za svrhu imaju smanjenje emisija plinova. Emisije plinova zrakoplova izravna su posljedica potrošnje goriva. Kako bi udovoljili propisima, zrakoplovni prijevoznici razvili su i uveli programe učinkovitog trošenja goriva koji sadrže mjere za smanjenje potrošnje goriva i posljedično emisija plinova. Električno voženje je nova tehnologija koja može poboljšati učinkovitost trošenja goriva i smanjiti emisije plinova zrakoplova na zemlji. Trenutno postoje dva sustava električnog voženja, no nijedan od njih još nije certificiran za komercijalnu uporabu. U ovom je diplomskom radu razvijen model za analizu utjecaja električnog voženja na potrošnju goriva i emisije plinova zrakoplova. Koristeći podatke o potrošnji goriva i vremenima voženja koje je pružila Croatia Airlines utvrđeno je da bi električno voženje moglo uštedjeti oko 60% goriva tijekom voženja te bi moglo smanjiti emisije plinova zrakoplova za otprilike isti iznos, u usporedbi sa standardnim voženjem pomoću glavnih motora zrakoplova.
