Environmental Engineering is the application of scientific management principles in assessing the impact of processes and products on the environment. In this course the cause of environmental problems which will form the basis of the development of ecological business policies and proposals for a sustainable development will be examined. The major techniques to bring about sustainable improvements in product manufacturing and product re-cycling in industry will be studied.
