Abstract

Green engineering embraces the concept that decisions to protect human health and the environment can have the greatest impact - and provide the most cost savings - when applied in the design and development of a process or product, before any waste is generated. Specifically, green engineering is the design, commercialization and use of processes and products that are feasible and economical while minimizing 1) generation of pollution at the source and 2) risk to human health and the environment. This paper presents tools and methods to incorporate green engineering throughout the curriculum.
