    Abstract

    The efforts of a Green Engineering Project, to incorporate green engineering into the chemical engineering curriculum are discussed. Green engineering refers to the design, commercialization and use of processes and products that are feasible and economical while minimizing pollution and risk to human health and environment. The green engineering principles can be incorporated into the curriculum through a senior/graduate elective course on environmental engineering or pollution prevention. The problems developed within the framework of material and energy balance courses teach students about topics such as workplace exposure routes, recycle and recovery processes, green chemistry, combustion and mass integration.
