Recycling Technology: Can It Be Taught?
Clum, James A.; Loper, Carl R., Jr.
This paper describes the content of a seminar-type engineering course dealing with materials reutilization (recycling). The course, consisting of lecture and discussion by various faculty and outside experts as well as student presentations of research papers on recycling topics, is intended to investigate current areas in which recycling of materials appears feasible. Subjects chosen to be investigated are examined as to the chemistry and physics involved in the recycling process, through a materials science and process engineering viewpoint, and concerning the economics of the situation. It is indicated that this slight modification of the curriculum in metallurgy to recognize future concerns in the area of materials reutilization will allay the need for entirely new programs to deal with the problem.
