Greater fuel efficiency is potentially preferable to reducing NOx emissions for aviation's climate impacts.

Agnieszka Skowron, David S Lee, Rubén Rodríguez De León, Ling L Lim, Bethan Owen,

Aviation emissions of nitrogen oxides (NO<sub>x</sub>) alter the composition of the atmosphere, perturbing the greenhouse gases ozone and methane, resulting in positive and negative radiative forcing effects, respectively. In 1981, the International Civil Aviation Organization adopted a first certification standard for the regulation of aircraft engine NO<sub>x</sub> emissions with subsequent ... Read more >>
