BASTIEN PAÏS'S LABELLED THESIS ON AVIATION AND PLANETARY BOUNDARIES
Bastien PAIS's thesis on aviation and planetary boundaries aims to broaden the scope of environmental impact analysis for the aviation sector beyond climate-related issues. It is one of the eight projects labelled in 2023 by ISA to conduct interdisciplinary research at the interface between science and society on aviation transition to sustainability.
Bastien’s research adopts a systemic approach, based on the Life Cycle Assessment methodology, to address three scientific targets :
– assess the absolute environmental sustainability of aviation prospective scenarios to evaluate the displacement of environmental problems;
– elaborate scenarios compatible with planetary boundaries ;
– develop an absolute environmental sustainability module for the AeroMaps sectoral Integrated Assessment Model (IAM).
This thesis is directed by Florian Simatos (ISAE-SUPAERO) and Lorie Hamelin (INSA), and supervised by Alexandre Gondran (ENAC).
It is funded by ADEME and a grant from EUR TSAE (ISAE-SUPAERO, ENAC, ONERA)
