CE 589 Industrial Materials and Waste

Description
Industries use large quantities of hazardous materials.  They also generate large quantities of hazardous waste.   These materials and wastes pose a threat to human health and the environment unless they are handled properly.  This course examines the management of both, including applicable regulations.  While prevention methods are preferred, recycling, reuse, treatment, and disposal are also necessary.  Each method is studied.  In addition, emergency response is examined.

General Course Objectives

Prerequisites
