Measuring the environmental performance with use of the SMARTEMIS system

In September 2018, for the first time in Ukraine, the environmental performance of the D-436-148FM, including non-volatile particulate matter (PM) was measured with use of SMARTEMIS by Swiss Federal laboratories for Materials Testing and research (EMPA), on the proposal of ICAO. The testing was carried out on the test bench of SE Ivchenko-Progress and attended by representatives of the State Aviation Administration of Ukraine, the National Aviation University, the Swiss Federal Office of Civil Aviation. Measurement results were presented and discussed at the meeting of the ICAO’s Working Group preparing suggestions on PM rating beyond 2020.
