CHEMENG 60Q: Environmental Regulation and Policy

Preference to sophomores. How environmental policy is formulated in the U.S. How and what type of scientific research is incorporated into decisions. How to determine acceptable risk, the public's right to know of chemical hazards, waste disposal and clean manufacturing, brownfield redevelopment, and new source review regulations. The proper use of science and engineering including media presentation and misrepresentation, public scientific and technical literacy, and emotional reactions. Alternative models to formulation of environmental policy. Political and economic forces, and stakeholder discussions.
Terms: Aut | Units: 3 | UG Reqs: GER:DB-EngrAppSci, WAY-AQR | Grading: Letter (ABCD/NP)
Instructors: Libicki, S. (PI)

CHEMENG 70Q: Masters of Disaster

Preference to sophomores. For students interested in science, engineering, politics, and the law. Learn from past disasters to avoid future ones. How disasters can be tracked to failures in the design process. The roles of engineers, artisans, politicians, lawyers, and scientists in the design of products. Failure as rooted in oversight in adhering to the design process. Student teams analyze real disasters and design new products presumably free from the potential for disastrous outcomes.

CHEMENG 162: Polymers for Clean Energy and Water (CHEMENG 262)

The first five weeks of this course will be devoted to the fundamental aspects of polymers necessary to understand the applications in energy and the environment. These include: polymer chain configuration, morphology of semi-crystalline and amorphous solids, thermal transition behavior, thermodynamics of polymer blends and block copolymers, and the time/temperature dependence of linear viscoelasticity. The remaining five weeks of class will be devoted to applications, with special emphasis on membrane transport, including ion transport in fuel cell exchange membranes, gas transport in hydrogen enrichment membranes, and water transport in desalination membranes. In addition, completely degradable biocomposites will be discussed. nPrerequisites: CHEM 31 A,B or CHEM 31X, CHEM 33, CHEM 171
