Thursday, March 18, 1:30-3:00 PM (Eastern)

Engineers have a new design parameter: reducing atmospheric emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases.

In this session, James D’Aloisio, managing partner of Klepper, Hahn, will explore the rationale for mitigation efforts from a scientific, political, and regulatory perspective and consider the role of the engineering community in addressing this challenge. He will also quantify the magnitude of emissions from engineering-related human activities including manufacturing, transportation, construction, and energy usage, and review various types of mitigation strategies.
