Abstract

This book highlights the latest research in the field of sustainable avia- tion. In recent decades, there have been considerable improvements in aircraft efficiency and noise reduction. However, with the demand for both passenger and freight transportation expected to increase signifi- cantly in future years, the aviation sector is becoming a growing source of environmental problems and a major contributor to global warming. Focusing on the need to address this mounting problem, this book discusses important new trends and outlines likely future developments in carbon emission reduction, carbon trading, and the impact of emerg- ing technologies, as well as social, legal, and regulatory changes as they pertain to the aviation sector. The book offers an invaluable reference guide for practitioners, regu- lators, academics, and students alike, in fields ranging from business and engineering to the social sciences. It can be used as a textbook and will benefit anyone interested in the future of aviation and our planet.
