Course Summary:

Solid Waste Disposal and Recycling 31:20 minutes

Compare the three main methods of dealing with the 700,000 tons of solid waste generated every day in the U.S.: landfill, incineration, and recycling. Explore the distinction between recycling, which is practical with many metals, and down-cycling, which is the fate of most plastics.

The Future: Engineering for Sustainability 36:26 minutes

Look beyond recycling to the higher goal of sustainability. Then close the course by considering the Great Northeast Blackout of 2003. Caused by inadequately pruned trees and a software bug, this cascading sequence of infrastructure failures holds important lessons for the world of everyday engineering.

Learning Objective:

By the end of this course the student will be able to compare the three main methods of dealing with solid waste generated every day: landfill, incineration and recycling, and summarize engineering for sustainability.
