The design of systems for processing and utilization of by-products generated by the bioresource industries, including primary agriculture, food processing, and forestry. Pollution problems caused by these industries are examined and opportunities for recycling and utilization of by-products are identified. Emphasis is on land as opposed to surface water as a receptor of organic by-products. A comprehensive strategy is developed for approaching pollution control and by-product utilization problems. Students are expected to integrate sociological, regulatory, economic, biochemical and technological considerations in exploring waste treatment and utilization options. Students work in teams to conduct an industrial waste survey and a feasibility study of waste reduction and enhanced waste utilization for a specific local industry, farm, or processing plant. Natural treatment/processing systems are emphasized and topics may include site assessment, composting, cogeneration, and wetlands treatment.

Prerequisite(s) or Corequisite(s): EN Three Year Common Core and 18 credit units from EN Senior Courses.
