Designing Sustainable Processes


Lee, K. H., The Ohio State University


Krishnan, Y., Corteva Agriscience

Recognizing the benefits of sustainable engineering design is growing, and it is driving a global, industry-wide implementation of sustainable processes/targets. In fact, incorporating a sustainable strategies (i.e. manufacturing, supply chain, etc) is important to stay competitive, and its impact is expected to grow. Scientific innovation and intentionally incorporating sustainability criteria as one of the goals for process development can enable sustainability to go hand-in-hand with profitability. The speakers in this session will address multiple facets of sustainable process development, including: (1) What are the key criteria for developing a sustainable process? (2) How do we translate a broad sustainable goal(s) into quantifiable metrics and incorporate them in each step of process development? (3) What are key challenges that may delay or prevent the development or implementation of sustainable processes? And (4) What can we do to minimize, or overcome those challenges?
