About this book

Aviation is one of the world's fastest growing, and most polluting industries. Industry, policy, and research experts examine what can be done to retain the economic and other benefits it brings, without the associated pollution, noise, congestion and loss of countryside. They look at technological, policy and demand management options with a view to acheiving a genuinely sustainable aviation industry.
