The goal of the Environmental Engineering program is to support transformative research which applies scientific and engineering principles to avoid or minimize solid, liquid, and gaseous discharges, resulting from human activities on land, inland and coastal waters, and air, while promoting resource and energy conservation and recovery.
|Food Waste Reduction||
This guide from the USDA Rural Development agency highlights the various ways the agency provides funding and support for food loss and waste reduction, reuse and composting.
The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign participates in Kimberly-Clark’s RightCycle Program. Campus facilities can keep disposable gloves out of the landfill to be recycled into useful plastic products.
Participation Makes a Difference
EnviroPure is a food waste elimination system that is a self-contained unit that can be continually fed food waste and dispose the waste. The system is designed to solve the environmental, operations, and economic issues associated with the disposal of food waste. The unit keeps optimal temperatures and oxygen levels for aerobic decomposition to take place more quickly. This results in a complete elimination of food waste without odors, sludge build-up, and system clean out requirements.
|Support Zipcar in Champaign-Urbana||
Fast. Convenient. Affordable. Environmentally friendly.
With Zipcar on campus, it just got easier to live without a car.
