Tutor description

Increasingly there is awareness that the way human society is progressing may well cause problems for future generations (e.g. IPCC, 2007a,b,c). This is, of course, the basis for the sustainability movement. Green engineering, eco-technology and sustainable technology are all interchangeable terms for the design of products and processes which maximise resource and energy efficiency, minimise (or preferably eliminate) waste and cause reduced harm to the environment.
