Engineering and Technology

  • The future is going to be largely what we design it to
    be. Will the future be one of continued challenges
    from shortages of water, depletion of finite material
    and energy resources, and degradation of the environment,
    or one of effective and efficient systems that bring
    about concurrent environmental and economic prosperity
    for societal benefit? The role of engineers and designers
    on all scales—molecular, products, processes, and systems—
    is going to be central and essential in determining
    what tomorrow will look like. Green engineering—engineering
    for sustainability—uses the same traditions of
    brilliance, innovation, and creativity, which are the legacy
    of the engineering disciplines, within the context and perspective
    of environmental, economic, and social benefit.
    This new application of engineering excellence to sustainability
    is among the most complex and important challenges
    faced by science and technology.

  • Paul T. Anastas is credited with establishing the field of green chemistry in 1991 during his time working for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as the Chief of the Industrial Chemistry Branch and as the founding Director of the U.S. Green Chemistry Program. Dr. Anastas has published widely on topics of science through sustainability.
