Study released on the costs and benefits of desulfurizing jet fuel

A new MIT-led study has been released that assesses the economic and environmental costs and benefits of desulfurizing jet fuel. Aircraft emissions can reduce air quality, leading to adverse health impacts including increased risk of premature mortality. A technically viable way to mitigate the health impacts of aviation is the […]
