    DescriptionLuchtvervuiling, en de vroegtijdige sterfte die daarmee samenhangt, worden sterk beïnvloed door emissiebronnen op afstand. Ongeveer de helft van de vroegtijdige sterfte in de VS vindt plaats buiten de staat waarin de emissie wordt geproduceerd. Onderzoekers van het Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) doen op donderdag 13 februari verslag van deze bevindingen in Nature. De hoofdauteur van het onderzoek, dr. Irene Dedoussi, is momenteel als universitair docent verbonden aan de TU Delft, waar zij haar expertise gebruikt om de impact van verbrandingsemissies van vliegtuigen op de atmosfeer te berekenen. Dit is een essentiële stap voor het verduurzamen van de luchtvaart.

    DescriptionAir pollution, and the associated premature deaths, are strongly affected by distant emission sources. In the US about half of the premature mortality occurs outside the state that produces the emissions. Researchers at MIT report on these findings in Nature on Thursday February 13th. First author of the study Dr. Irene Dedoussi is now an Assistant Professor at TU Delft, where she applies her expertise to calculate the impact of aircraft combustion emissions on the atmosphere; a necessary step to make aviation sustainable.

    DescriptionHere’s further proof that air pollution ignores borders: In most states, about half of the premature deaths caused by poor air quality are linked to pollutants that blow in from other states, a new study found. The study investigated the sources and effects of two major pollutants that harm humans, ozone and fine airborne particles, in the lower 48 states from 2005 to 2018. It found that in New York, nearly two-thirds of premature deaths are attributable to pollution from sources in other states. That makes the state the largest “net importer” of early deaths, to use the researchers’ term.
