This report is a comprehensive summary and analysis of proposed aircraft turbine engine air pollution regulations and their relevance to the USAF. Existing USAF aircraft turbine engine emission goals are critically reviewed, and revised goals are proposed. The original goals contained emission standards and compliance dates the proposed goals contain neither, The authors believe that the goals should be set to provide an incentive for emission reduction and should not be numerical standards and dates, which may or may not be met. The proposed USAF goals cover the critical turbine engine emissions. Carbon monoxide and oxides of sulfer are not considered serious problems at todays emission levels, while smoke and hydrocarbon emissions appear to warrant the highest priority for reduction. Although cost effective oxides of nitrogen control NO sub x is viewed with pessimism, it is concluded that NO sub x reduction deserves continued USAF research. Author
