One of the main challenges in the aerospace sector is achieving a sustainable future for global air traffic. In order to address this issue, a seminar about sustainable aviation was organized by the Universidad Rey Juan Carlos (URJC) on 1 and 2 March. It took place at the Fuenlabrada Campus of URJC (Madrid), and it brought together students and professionals from the scientific and industry fields to discuss the most promising strategies for mitigating the negative impact of aviation.
One of the speakers for the event was Manuel Soler Arnedo, professor at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid and coordinator at the Aircraft Operations Lab UC3M. He delivered a talk titled “How much would it cost to mitigate climate change resulting from CO2 and non-CO2 emissions through climate-efficient flight plans?”
The insights shared during the symposium are particularly relevant in today’s context, as the aviation industry faces increasing pressure to reduce its carbon footprint. The strategies and research presented in the seminar shed light on the potential for climate-efficient flight plans to contribute to the overall goal of mitigating climate change.
