ENCH 476 - Environmental Risk Assessment & Remediation

(3.00)
The objective of this course is to examine the fundamental principles governing toxic contaminant exposure and risk to humans and ecosystems. The course covers necessary aspects of probability and statistics, physical and chemical behavior of key priority pollutants, mass transfer and exposure pathways of the contaminants, human and environmental toxicology and methodologies for risk assessment. Concepts of green engineering focused on design, commercialization, and use of processes and products to reduce generation of pollution and risk to human health and the environment are studied. Case studies of remediation technology applications with a focus on understanding how human and environmental risk is managed in a real-life situation are presented.
