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?
