Green Engineering: Perspectives, Challenges and Tools
- Type: Archived Webinar
It is impossible to imagine modern life without the products provided by the petrochemical industry. These products are used in health care, consumer products, transportation, food processing, electronics, and construction. Yet, the same chemical processes that produce materials also generate wastes and emissions. The challenge is to keep the costs of chemical products affordable, while continuing to reduce environmental impacts. Approaches that avoid the generation of wastes or pollutants, variously known as green engineering, environmentally conscious manufacturing, eco-efficient production, or pollution prevention, can provide alternatives that are cost effective and result in significant environmental improvements.
Dr. David T. Allen is the Gertz Regents Professor of Chemical Engineering, and the Director of the Center for Energy and Environmental Resources at the University of Texas at Austin. He is the author of six books and over 180 papers, primarily in the areas of air quality and pollution prevention. For the past decade, his work has focused primarily on urban air quality and the development of materials for environmental education. Dr. Allen was a lead investigator for the first and second Texas Air Quality Studies, which involved hundreds of researchers drawn from around the world, and...Read more
