Introduction or Background: Students will review an existing waste water treatment facility or related
technology[ies], , air pollution control technology or technologies and solid waste management practices in a workplace, such as an industry, local county, municipality or town. Important is that students should apply their theoretical knowledge to solve an existing environmental pollution problem [related to any of the three compartments: air, water and soils]. Students can also decide to look at how to evaluate these technologies.
Typical examples would be to use pollutants’ emission regulations and standards, sampling procedures, or examine different sources of such pollution (population growth and demand for consumer products; consumption and production patters and sustainability criteria). This will lead students into recommending best practices or sustainable policies and technologies for pollution control. Please students are asked to strictly follow the format shown below (i.e. provide answer all sections) to write the report or their term papers. It is as if you are answering essay questions. Do not remove the Titles shown in Bold. You can add sub-titles, however. The sub-titles added must be reflected in the Table of Contents.
