Environmental and Industrial Chemistry
This subject provides an introduction to industrial chemistry, the science concerned with the chemical processing of raw materials into useful and profitable products, the challenges associated with harmful by products or decomposition, and measures for their cleansing or removal. The relationship between chemical process industries and the environment, its protection and remediation will provide the context for discussion of the chemical processes used in a number of industries and their impact on sites intended for re-development.
One subject credit towards the graduate certificate in Project Management - Environmental.
Upon successful completion of this subject the student will be able to:
- explain the basic processes in electric power generation, air conditioning, refrigeration and approaches to the prevention of pollutants from these industries;
- assess the impact of fuel processing, chemical conversion of coal, and industrial gasses processing, as well as the processes applied in ceramic, cement, and glass industries that may affect the site;
- explain and predict the interaction between in-ground industrial chemicals as they relate to the site;
- relate the basic processes applied in nuclear industry to the short and long term effect on the site;
- explain the principles of food processing, production of paper, plastics, and rubber and the effect of these processes on the site;
- Synthesize knowledge, skills and attitudes learned and make informed recommendations supported by data, regarding the spheres of industrial chemistry.
