Chemical Engineers face major research challenges associated with the imperative to protect and improve the environment. These challenges include designing optimal, less polluting chemical plants and processes, improving air quality through research, managing hazardous wastes responsibly, and developing multimedia approaches to reduce the chemical risk to human health and the environment. Since 1988, the USEPA has established a pollution prevention R and D program to work with states, local governments, regional and federal agencies, and industry to encourage the identification, development and demonstration of pollution prevention technologies and methods to reduce wastes.
