The Sustainable Engineering Initiative is devoted to developing comprehensive and tangible engineering methods of addressing climate change & environmental contamination. The initiative’s researchers will be focused on a framework they call AMRAd: avoiding emissions and pollutants whenever possible; mitigating them when total avoidance isn’t possible; remediating in cases where mitigation is insufficient, and developing engineering adaptations to situations beyond human control.
