Abstract: The aviation sector continues to work in many directions to limit the impact of global climate change on the struggle. In this context, it has achieved significant gains especially with the improvements in motor technologies. However, in order to achieve the desired targets, not only technological but also alternative studies based on alternative fuels have taken the agenda. In this context, fossil fuel improvements also developed as an important field of study. This study primarily evaluated the thermodynamic analysis of alternative fuel-based preferences for a turboprop engine. Then, environmental effects, which are defined as CO2 emissions, caused by entropy production due to irreversibility were investigated. Especially the benefits of alternative fuel preferences were defined by their CO2 emission potentials. At the end of the study, the effects of alternative fuel use with engine performances were evaluated.
Keywords: aviation; alternative fuels; turboprop; CO2 emission; sustainability.
