Aviation is an important contributor to anthropogenic climate change. As indirect greenhouse gases, nitrogen oxides (NOx = NO + NO2) add to the Effective Radiative Forcing (ERF) induced by aircraft emissions. This work addresses a better understanding of emission mitigation by investigating dependencies between engine parameters and emitted...

Plastic is one of the major pollutants in the world and currently, more than 300 million tons of plastic are produced worldwide (Miandad et al. 2019). Since only 9.5% of plastic waste is being recycled, littering has caused a lot of non-recyclable plastics (NRP) that wander around damaging the environment and ending up in landfills, oceans and...
