About the Course

Environmental Impact, Legislation and Engineering in Process Safety

Measuring, monitoring and mitigating environmental emissions.

This course provides you with a fundamental knowledge of environmental emissions. You'll find out how to design and put in place abatement technologies. You'll be able to ensure that these comply with environmental legislation.

This course is also delivered on at least one of the Faculty's Masters programmes at Newcastle University in Singapore, and you will attend alongside full and part time registered students. If you elect to study the full Masters' programme after completing the module, this is an available option for you.

Objectives and Outline

Environmental Impact, Legislation and Engineering in Process Safety

Course Objectives

By the end of the course, you'll be able to:

  • carry out environmental impact assessments
  • perform and synthesise dispersion modelling
  • provide design and engineering solutions for pollution abatement
  • analyse environmental impacts based on pollution dispersion modelling
  • evaluate control abatement technologies

You'll understand how process emissions lead to safety and health risks. You'll find out about the requirements of environmental legislation. You'll learn how these control the emissions level of chemical and physical hazards.

You'll be able to provide solutions to measure and monitor different types of emissions.

Course Outline

  1. Introduction and underpinning science of how pollution can affect the environment and human health.
  2. Emission and Environmental Quality Standards and Regulation.
  3. Planned release and unplanned release.
  4. Environmental measurement and monitoring approaches.
  5. Dispersion of pollution - length and timescales of pollutant transport and impact.
  6. Dispersion modelling.
  7. Air pollution abatement technologies including tall stack policy, scrubbers and flare design.
  8. Water pollution abatement technologies including bunding, containment and emergency response to chemical and toxic release.
  9. Land pollution abatement and remediation technologies including bunding containment and emergency response to chemical and toxic release.
  10. Environmental Impact Assessment - EIA and land use planning.
