Waste to Value

February 12 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Join us this month as Prof. Mansoor Barati, discusses how society can address the challenges for developing sustainable materials in the future. Resource scarcity has reached a critical point where the earth’s capacity to support modern human life is rapidly disappearing. Space mining, resource efficiency, alternative materials, and recycling are the proposed solutions, the latter being the most viable and cost-effective approach. Prof. Barati will give some examples of his research on recycling the traditional industrial wastes into valuable products;…

Distinguished Lecture Series: Norbert Morgenstern (Feb 27)

RSVP REQUIREDTITLE: “From Certainty to Uncertainty in 64 Years”ABSTRACT:The Speaker, a graduate from the UofT in the class of 1956, was exposed at the outset of his career to a program that presented engineering practice as having a high degree of certainty. Over a duration of 64 years devoted to teaching,research and professional practice in the field of Geotechnical Engineering, he has become increasingly aware of uncertainty in professional practice. Key milestones associated with this odyssey and the management of uncertainty…

LLE – Lubricin – Alleviating the Effects of Dry Eye (Gerald Fuller, Stanford University)

March 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

  Host: Arun RamchandranDry eye is an affliction where the tear film of the eye is unable to protect the cornea epithelium. One suspected cause of this condition is a deficiency of mucin, a protein that is thought to enhance wettability and reduce friction experienced during blinking. We report on the development of a model for mucin deficient dry eye and an investigation of the ability of lubricin, a heavily glycosylated protein, to restore lubricity and low friction during simulated blink…

 2019-2020 AEESP Distinguished LectureCo-hosted with CivMin, Ryerson, and YorkHost: Elodie PasseportIn the Rocky Mountain watersheds, weathering of disseminated pyrite in the country rock and in mining workings generates acidic, metal-enriched water that drains into streams and rivers. This overall process is referred to as acid rock drainage (ARD). ARD is a long-term and pervasive environmental problem in the Rocky Mountains and the Sierras, which provide water supply for communities and agriculture throughout the south western US. Contamination has not abated…
