Sessions/ Tracks

Environmental chemistry is the study of chemical processes occurring in the environment which are impacted by humankind's activities. These impacts may be felt on a local scale, through the presence of urban air pollutants or toxic substances arising from a chemical waste site, or on a global scale, through depletion of stratospheric ozone or global warming. The focus in our courses and research activities is upon developing a fundamental understanding of the nature of these chemical processes, so that humankind's activities can be accurately evaluated.

The field of environmental chemistry is both very broad and highly interdisciplinary. Within the Department of Chemistry we have a core group of faculty whose research interests are in atmospheric and aquatic chemistry, photochemistry, and the chemistry and transport of long-lived pollutants. We interact with other chemists in the Department, with numerous other researchers at the University who have related interests, and with nearby government agencies. Indeed, the setting for the study of environmental chemistry is ideal.

Track 1: Environmental Chemistry and Engineering

Environmental chemistry is the scientific review of the chemical and biochemical phenomena that occur in natural places. Environmental chemistry can be described as the study of the sources, reactions, transport, effects of chemical species in the air, soil, and water environments; and the effect of human activity on these. Environmental chemistry is an integrative science that includes atmospheric, aquatic and soil chemistry, as well as uses analytical chemistry. It is allied to environmental and other areas of science. It is different from green chemistry, which tries to trim potential pollution at its source.

Whereas Environmental engineering deals with the combination of sciences and engineering principles to develop the natural environment, to provide healthy air, water, and land for human habitation and for other organisms, and to procure pollution sites.

BCC research estimates that the global environmental sensor and monitoring business will grow from $13.2 billion in 2014 to nearly $17.6 billion in 2019, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.9% for the period of 2014 to 2019. This report provides information on emerging growth areas, such as large-scale monitoring networks, analyses of global market trends, with data from 2013, estimates for 2014, and projections of compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) through 2019.

Track 2: Environmental Biotechnology

Environmental biotechnology is a complex of scientific and engineering education related to the use of microorganisms and their products in the inhibition of environmental pollution through biotreatment of liquid, solid, and gaseous wastes, bioremediation of spoil environments, biomonitoring of environment and treatment processes. The aids of biotechnological treatment of wastes are as follows: diversity of the conditions suitable for biodegradation, biodegradation of a wide spectrum of hazard substances by natural microorganisms; availability of a wide range of biotechnological channels for complete wrecking of hazardous wastes; and diversity of the conditions suitable for biodegradation. The major considerations for utilization of biotechnology in waste treatment are technically and economically reasonable rate of detoxication of substances during biotechnological treatment, and ability of natural microorganisms to degrade substances.

U.S. sales of environmental biotechnology products was valued at $241.2 million in 2012. This is expected to increase at a total compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.9%, with 2013 sales of $261.9 million, rising to $382.3 million in 2018.

Track 3: Pollution Control Chemistry and Green Chemistry

Green chemistry is the design of chemical products and processes that reduce or eliminate the use or generation of hazardous substances. Green chemistry applies across the life cycle of a chemical product, including its design, manufacture, use, and ultimate disposal. Green chemistry is also known as sustainable chemistry. Green chemistry reduces pollution at its source by minimizing or eliminating the hazards of chemical feedstocks, reagents, solvents, and products.

The global market for air pollution control equipment reached nearly $56.6 billion and $61 billion in 2013 and 2014, respectively. This market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.2% to $78.4 billion for the period 2014-2019. This report provides in-depth analysis of the global markets and technologies for air pollution control equipment.

Track 4: Environmental Toxicology and Mutagenicity

Environmental toxicology is the science and practice of the adverse effects – mainly of chemicals another man-made agents in the environment and through the environment. The targeted receptors of these adverse effects may be both the ecosystem and the human. Environmental toxicology includes the study of chemical substances – potential and actual contaminants – polluting air, water, soil and food, their impacts upon the structure and function of ecological systems, including man as well as the use of these results for decision making and environmental management.

Mutagenicity refers to the induction of permanent transmissible changes in the structure of the genetic material of cells or organisms. These changes (mutations) may involve a single gene or a block of genes.

The global in vitro toxicity testing market was valued at $4 billion in 2011 and more than $4.9 billion in 2012. This market is estimated to reach nearly $9.9 billion in 2017, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14.7% for the five-year period, 2012 to 2017. This report provides an overview of the global in vitro toxicity testing market, with assessments of its growth potential over the next five years and the current market scenario for alternative measures to animal testing.

Track 5: Energy and Environment

Energy and environment are related in the technological and scientific aspects including energy conservation, and the synergy of energy forms and systems with the physical environment. The levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide has risen by 31% between 1800 and 2000, going from 280 parts per million to 367 parts per million. Scientists predict that co2 levels could be as high as 970 parts per million by the year 2100. Different factors are responsible for this development, such as promotion with respect to technical parameters of energy converters, in particular, improved efficiency; discharge characteristics and increased lifetime. Various environmental policies have been implemented across the world for reduction of GHG emissions for improvement of environment.

  • Renewable energy
  • Solid waste management
  • Sustainable development
  • Biogas and biomass
  • Biofuels
  • Solar energy

The global market for energy and environmental catalysts totaled $25.7 billion in 2014. This market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.6%, from nearly $27.3 billion in 2015 to nearly $35.8 billion by 2020.

Track 6: Applications of Environmental Chemistry

Environmental chemistry application areas:

    Risk/Hazard Assessments and Environmental Impact Assessments

    Environmental Management

    Groundwater protection

    Surface water quality protection

    Soil protection

    Cleaner production and waste management

    Policy

Track 7: Environmental Design

Environmental design is the manner of addressing surrounding environmental parameters when devising plans, policies, programs, buildings, or products.

Environmental design can also refer to the applied arts and sciences dealing with creating the human-designed environment. These fields constitute architecture, geography, urban planning, landscape architecture, and interior design. Environmental design can also encircle interdisciplinary areas such as historical preservation and lighting design. In terms of a bigger scope, environmental design has implications for the industrial design of products: wind-electricity generators, innovative automobiles, solar-electric equipment, and other kinds of equipment could serve as examples. Currently, the term has expanded to employ wind-electricity generators to ecological and sustainability issues.

The global market for environmental remediation technologies was valued at about $59.5 billion in 2013. The total market is expected to expand from nearly $61.7 billion in 2014 to $80.5 billion in 2019, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.5% from 2014 through 2019.

Track 8: Environmental Hazards

Environmental hazards may be chemical, physical, biological, biomechanical or psychosocial in nature. Environmental hazards build traditional risks of poor sanitation and shelter, as well as agricultural and industrial contamination of air, water, food, land. Environmental health risks result from people interacting with hazards in the surrounding environment.

In order to prevent environmental hazards affecting our health, it is very important to be aware of the hazards and to take steps to supervise the risks. Some majorly deals with general environmental health hazards, and not extremes of climate, chemical hazards, occupational hazards, physical hazards and hazards associated with food also may be the reason.

The global market for hazardous waste management reached $23.8 billion in 2013 and nearly $25.9 billion in 2014. This market is expected to grow to nearly $33.9 billion in 2019, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.5%.

Track 9: Sustainability Science

Sustainability science focuses on the dynamic interactions between nature and society. Substantial understanding of those interactions has been gained in recent decades through work in environmental science that includes human action on the environment and environmental impacts on humans, work in social and development studies that seeks to account for environmental influences and a small but growing body of interdisciplinary research. But we urgently need to move beyond these beginnings to shape a better general understanding of the rapidly growing interdependence of the nature-society system.

Track 10: Environmental Management and Policy

This Area reviews the origins and nature of environmental challenges facing society through the study of their scientific, socio-economic and political dimensions, and prospect the ways of addressing these challenges through environmental, natural resource management, conservation and policy approaches. It is concerned with existing and emerging strategies for avoiding and managing the impacts of human activities and for conserving the resources of the biosphere in ways that are supporting to sustainable development. It provides knowledge, concepts, and skills needed to be effective in environmental management in business, government, and not-for-profit sectors.

Track 11: Environmental Biology

Environmental Biology is the study of organism’s interaction with the environment, and how they adapt to changing environments. It explores the interconnections among biology, ecology, evolution, and conservation. Environments consist of many components including both physical features, such as climate and soil type, and biological features, such as prey and predators. The term environmental biology has wider connotations than ecology because it includes the study of humans in the environment, so you will find such subjects as agriculture, pollution and the unnatural surroundings. Understanding the ecology of an area is like trying to put together a gigantic, multidimensional jigsaw. Some pieces are the individual species in the area.

Track 12: Environmental science

Environmental science is a multi disciplinary academic field that combines physical, biological and information sciences to the environmental study. The social science fields that are incorporated into environmental science include geography, economics, and political science. Philosophy and ethics are the two fields within the humanities that are also included in environmental science. The surface environment of the Earth is disciplined by interactions between the deep Earth, the atmosphere, the hydrosphere, and the biosphere. This intercommunication occur on timescales ranging from picoseconds for chemical reactions on mineral surfaces to the millions of years over which plate tectonic processes and earth’s evolution take place. Investigations are open on what shapes our world and the environment in which we live, in order to understand the interactions between Earth's geology, atmosphere, biosphere, oceans, and human responses and roles.

BCC research estimates that the global environmental sensor and monitoring business will grow from $13.2 billion in 2014 to nearly $17.6 billion in 2019, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.9% for the period of 2014 to 2019.

Track 13: Environmental Effects on Physiology

Global climate change will affect people and the environment in many ways. Some of these impacts, like stronger hurricanes and severe heat waves, could be life threatening. Others, like spreading weeds, will be less serious. And some effects, like longer growing seasons for crops, might even be good! However, as the Earth keeps getting warmer, the negative effects are expected to outweigh the positive ones.

Track 14: Environmental Geology

Environmental geology unites the core foundation of environmental science and places particular emphasis on the study of geology and executing it to real-world situations. It is an applied science concerned with the practical application of the basis of geology in the iron out of environmental problems. It includes Hydrogeology, Environmental Mineralogy, Hydro geochemistry, Soil Mechanics etc. The fundamentals concepts of environmental geology are Human population growth, Sustainability, Hazardous earth processes etc. Environmental Geology employs in geologic hazards, topical issues, and natural resources of concern to society such as change in climate and provides sound advice about how humanity can live responsibly on Earth.

Research on environmental geology emphases on the physical and chemical processes occurring at or nearby the Earth’s surface impacting by human activities. Hydrogeology is important now a days as some piece of the world are sacred with frequent rainfall and plentiful surface water resources, but most countries need to use the water that is underground stored to supplement their needs. Environmental geology applies geologic information to the solution, prediction and study of geologic complications such as Earth materials, Landscape evaluation, Natural hazards, Environmental impact analysis and remediation.
