Course description and aims

This course aims at introducing various technologies to pollution prevention and effective usage of water, air, rear metals and plastics from chemical point of view. Especially, the prevention of pollution of air and the effective usage of water are focused.

Environmental load reduction technologies are important to produce materials and energies. For understanding these technologies, not only the process approach but also reaction approach is important. The reaction and processes, which are important keys for the technologies, will be described.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) Understand flows of air and metals and basic problems in the environmental field.
2) Understand the general strategy to dissolve the environmental problems.
3) Apply the development of novel materials and technologies to solve the problems.

Keywords

Urban mine, rear metals, catalyst, waste gas, formaldehyde.

Competencies that will be developed

Intercultural skills Communication skills Specialist skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

Towards the end of class, students are given exercise problems related to the lecture given that day to solve. To prepare for class, students should read the course schedule section and check what topics will be covered. Required learning should be completed outside of the classroom for preparation and review purposes.

Course schedule/Required learning

  Course schedule Required learning
Class 1 Urban mine Understand the definition of waste rare metals and their recycling.
Class 2 Overview of environmental catalyst Understand overview of catalysts and catalysis for environmental clearing.
Class 3 Self-investigation for report Students must study and investigate the topics by them-selves for the preparation of report.
Class 4 Self-investigation for report Students must study and investigate the topics by them-selves for the preparation of report.
Class 5 Automobile exhaust cleaning catalyst Understand catalyst and catalysis for automobile exhaust cleaning.
Class 6 硫黄除去触媒(脱硫触媒)および酸化窒素除去触媒(脱硝触媒) Sulfur elimination (De-sulfur) and nitrogen oxides elimination (De-NOx) catalysts Understand catalyst and catalysis for elimination of sulfur and nitrogen oxides form environment
Class 7 De-toxic catalysts for formaldehyde and relative poisonous organic compounds Understand catalyst and catalysis for de-toxic formaldehyde and relative poisonous organic compounds
Class 8 Summary and preparation of report Review the course contents. Prepare the report about given problems related to the lecture.

Textbook(s)

None required.

Reference books, course materials, etc.

Most materials used in class can be found on OCW-i.
Some course materials are provided during class.

Assessment criteria and methods

1) Students will be assessed on their understanding of environmental load reduction technologies for air and metals, and their ability to apply them to solve problems.
2) Students’ course scores are based on report prepare in the class (80%) and exercise problems (20%).
3)The instructor may fail a student if he/she repeatedly comes to class late or resubmits reports too often.
