The National Center for Sustainable Transportation wass proud to sponsor the 2021 World Symposium on Transport and Land Use Research! The event was held virtually August 9-11, 2021, hosted by Portland State University in Portland, Oregon, USA.
This policy brief summarizes findings from a white paper that assembles the most prominent proposals to address aspects of securing or reforming state and federal transportation funding and reviews them in the context of sustainable transportation.
This study explores the potential to promote lower-emissions air travel by providing consumers with information about the carbon emissions of alternative flight choices in the context of online flight search and booking.
Day One: Keynote Talk by critical mobilities scholar Mimi Sheller, author of Mobility Justice: The Politics of Movement in an Age of Extremes. Day Two: Workshop - Participants will collaborate at a closed workshop to produce an interdisciplinary mobility justice research agenda that draws on bike equity and racial justice.
This policy brief summarizes findings and provides policy implications from research that analyzed life cycle assessment literature to understand whether alkali-activated materials can achieve the same mechanical performance as Portland cement with lower CO2 emissions.
To increase the adoption of Alkali activated materials concrete for civil applications such as pavements, it is fundamental to analyze the existing literature to clarify the link between environmental and mechanical performance, identifying opportunities for applications that are tailored to the local availability of raw material, reducing transport environmental costs.
