NAS report on lead emissions from piston-engine aircraft

This week the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) released a report on options to reduce lead emissions from piston-engine aircraft.  The charge was to consider existing non-leaded fuel alternatives, environmental concentrations of lead near airports where piston-powered aircraft are used, and potential mitigation measures to reduce environmental lead concentrations.

Jay Turner served on the committee tasked with preparing this report.
