A novel aviation infrastructure system by a multilayer ecological & energized module (EEM) system is aiming to create a high safety & security, graceful and comfortable air travel environment, high-quality air, zero energy, zero-water-consumption, and zero-carbon with a 100% greening rate, etc. It contains a modular EEM optical runway, totally-enclosed EEM ecological modules, and EEM ecological modules with thin-film or silicon solar cells on the top layer, etc. With the light processed and enhancing and optimizing crushed shadows & blown highlights and high contrast color layout, the EEM optical runway has a powerful visual flight, runway visual range (RVR), and significant blown highlights in 3D position and posture in various complex weather and occasions for the instrument landing, manually land and taxiing, etc. It’s always clean and bright without lampblack and exhaust traces since it is easy to rinse and replace. The totally-enclosed EEM system is laid flat on the entire airfield, including the ceiling and flooring of aircraft as well. It will generate enough clean energy, provide enough high-quality air with plentiful oxygen, plant anions, floral, phytoncide, active constituents, and fragrant scents with low-concentration CO2 for passengers and staff, and completely isolate birds’ food chains and habitat, etc. With controllable photosynthetic acceleration, the EEM system is a powerful carbon capture system with significant positive spillover. With antiskid and rainwater steerable structures in the EEM, the planes have calculable security assurances in severe weather and catastrophic events. Hot, cold water and steam system without electromagnetic interference in EEM are used for hot waves and snow and ice.
