  • Overview

    The subject covers the chemical processes behind environmental problems dealing with air, energy, climate change, toxic chemicals, water and other issues. Topics include the source, reactions, transport, effects, and fates of chemical materials in air, water and soil environments. It has an emphasis on training students to learn basic knowledge and skills of environmental engineering processes. This includes working individually and in small teams. The fundamental and practical investigations of environmental chemical processes are focused on laboratory skills. The subject combines both environmental chemical processes and practical lab-oriented engineering processes.
    The following topics will be covered:
    1. Review of fundamental chemical principles
    2. Water, air, soil and their impurities
    3. Chemical transformation and fate processes
    4. Green Chemistry
    5. Environmental sample analysis and measurement issues
    6. Chemical and instrumental measurements of environmental samples
