Environmental impact studies for chemical processes tend to be highly technical. Education Director Claudia Bode sought to simplify a few such impact studies performed at the CEBC. Together with Bala Subramaniam and two undergraduates, Bode summarized five key takeaways from data for several industrial processes. Their work was published this February in the Journal of Chemical Education. The practical lessons help college students think about ecological burdens in the context of economics, building skills critical for their future careers.
