Sustainability & Resiliency
The FAA’s Airport Technology Research & Development Branch (ATR) helps advance innovative practices and technologies that improve the sustainability and resilience of airports. ATR is researching how to reduce the environmental impact of aviation. Our team is hard at work addressing some of our toughest sustainability challenges, such as identifying eco-friendly foam to put out aircraft fires, and creating the airport infrastructure to support new eco-friendly aircraft.
