Chemical Engineering

SEnuke: Ready for action

Student: Mmmm. If you require to dig up additional info about mannatech australia, there are heaps of resources you could pursue. Dunno, all-that pollution and stuff is very bad.

Professor: You imagine a could be the source on most pollution then?

Student: Demonstrably.

Professor: You have done re-search into this?

Student: Hummph. You should not, everyone knows that is true.

Professor: Really? My research informs me differently. Tell me, what do you mean when you say pollution?

Student: Smells, diseased...

Professor: So...You are interested in understanding Chemical Engineering?

Student: Mmmm. Dunno, all that pollution and stuff is very bad.

Professor: You think the is the source on most pollution then?

Student: Certainly.

Professor: You've done re-search in to this?

Student: Hummph. Should you wish to learn further on read about, there are thousands of databases people should consider investigating. You should not, everyone knows that is true.

Professor: Actually? My research informs me differently. Tell me, what do you suggest when you say pollution?

Student: Smells, people dying and poisoned streams.

Professor: And you think this all comes down to the chemical industry?

Student: Yes.

Professor: How about each of the gases that come from your boiler at home? Think about the gases that come from the car? How about all the gases that come out from the power station to produce the electricity on your lights or air-conditioning at home? What about...

Student: Yeah, yeah, whatever.

Professor: You insult me by picking a quarrel, and then refusing to listen to an opposite view. I actually do not need you on my course anyway, move along and allow next person in please.

Student: What do you mean, you dont want me? Huh?

Professor: Exactly that, move along now.

Student: OKAY, convince me that the folks running these chemical plants are typical good folks who produce no air-pollution

Professor: Which was not what I said. They do make pollution, but much less of it than they applied to and much less than any power station does. There are controls on which gases they could launch to the air, and how much of each gas. The businesses have to observe their emissions and tell the government if they release a lot of.

Student: Very likely.

Professor: The government send personnel around to test that the monitoring is set up. These officials make unannounced visits and there had better be a good reason if they find any lost data.

Student: Mmmm

Professor: The companies are established five-year targets to reduce their emissions below present levels. The federal government sets them another reduction target that's to be reached within another five years, when they hit those targets, even if they hit them after two years

Student: Thats not so good.

Professor: It seems unfair sometimes, however the constant drive for reduced emissions makes the company invest in re-search and new processes to reduce the level of waste gases it releases. We learned about get by browsing webpages. It promotes the business to find uses for anyone waste gases.

Student: That seems very good.

Professor: Technology is shifting constantly. Processes be much more efficient and pollution is reduced. No industry can actually reduce its pollution to zero, though.

Student: Why not?

Professor: Its a law of diminishing returns. 90% of the emissions could be removed at low cost. That leaves one hundred thousand. An additional 91-1 could be removed at high-cost, however making hands down the. An exceptionally high price is necessary to eliminate the next 0.9%, but there is still 0.1% of the original volume. You can see the treatment cost is increasing, nevertheless the pollution reduction is now more and more limited.

Student: Right. So is chemical engineering a great choice then?

Professor: It depends... You should be good at solving dilemmas, in order to consider laterally. You should be able to work as a part of a staff, too.

Student: Right...

Professor: You also must be involved in a career in management

Student: Huh, whys that?

Professor: Technology goes along quickly in this field and within a decade of getting your level your understanding will soon be out-dated. There will be new students competing for the jobs you will have been doing, who have updated knowledge. Many chemical engineers move into management after about a dozen years in the job. Their history of engineering is still of good use, but they observe that they are not at the cutting edge. For one more interpretation, consider having a glance at: asea water.

Student: But management can be a good job to, cant it?

Professor: It may, certainly. Are you interested to find out more then?

Student: thanks, and Positively..
