Abstract : Experimental work was done to determine for aviation turbine fuels the trace components that could be source material of atmospheric pollutant. Data were obtained on both U.S. and European area fuels. Other analytical data were obtained for turbine exhaust gases and, concurrently, on the fuels used in producing the exhaust. The objective in the engine exhaust study was to correlate, if possible, the presence of fuel trace components and the appearance of such components in the aircraft emissions. Results of the study, which too-limited to be definitive, nonetheless suggest that trace elements of fuels can be controlled at levels such that the fuel is not significant as a source of those elements as aircraft emissions.
