ENGN 1931P - Fuels, Energy, Power and the Environment
The course will explore where the majority of "useful" energy originates today. Main fossil energy sources (e.g., coal, crude oil, gas, shale oil, tar sands) and their chemical characteristics will be considered. Environmental aspects of fuel production (mining, drilling), fuel conversion technologies, both for delivering heat and power, and why there are limitations on the conversion to the latter. Calculations of "carbon footprint" will be illustrated. Common examples of emissions control technologies, including carbon capture and sequestration, will be presented. Policy and social implications of these energy issues will be discussed. Prerequisites: CHEM 0330 and ENGN 0720.
