PPR Specialization Overview

9-27-12

Prof. Trish Holden, Bren School


Why ppr

Why PPR ?

  • Pollution

    • Waste management: driven by population and development

    • Emerging pollutants in U.S. , EU, etc.

    • Legacy pollutants globally (Hg, DDT, etc.)

    • Soil (agricultural sustainability), water: scarce resources

  • Prevention

    • “Greening” of industry / products

    • Analysis of life cycle (raw materials to end-of-life for products)

    • Resource conservation

    • By-product recovery

  • Remediation

    • Ex- vs. in-situ

    • Engineered vs. monitored natural attenuation

Example problem

Example problem

  • 2005 Benzene spill in Songhua River, PRC

  • Songhua River: drinking water source

    • Harbin (9 M people)

    • Other PRC cities

    • Russia: x-border city of 0.7 M people

  • Benzene

    • toxic carcinogen

    • somewhat soluble in water

    • volatile

    • can biodegrade


Example questions concerns

Example: questions & concerns

  • How hazardous is this spill for humans and biota?

  • How far downstream will the pollution travel?

  • What are the pollutant fates?

  • What can we do about the pollution, and when?

  • How can we avoid this in the future?
