Industrial Ecology and Green Chemistry
Industrial ecology and green design are key to addressing many of the sustainability challenges posed by ever-increasing industrial production.In this LC, students study the energy and materials used in industry, and develop strategic approaches to the design, use, and re-use of materials.
