Unit Assignments

Unit I Journal

We are about to work through Godish, Davis, and Fu’s (2014) textbook related to air quality. As such, we are going to be discussing engineering principles related to how we can engineer air quality as a means of controlling air quality. Consequently, we must first consider what constitutes air pollution. What do you believe qualifies as air pollution? Why?

Your journal entry must be at least 200 words in length. No references or citations are necessary.

Unit II Journal

In our first unit, we learned about chemical redox reactions that take place in the environment and that often create outdoor air pollution. In our reading, we were introduced to the term sink.

What is the significance of an atmospheric chemical sink—specifically when studying methods to engineer outdoor air quality? How would you explain this in layman’s terms to a company hiring you to help with the permitting process for a new facility?

Your journal entry must be at least 200 words in length. No references or citations are necessary.

Unit II Mini Project

Over the course of the next six units, you will be developing a course project. You will complete a single section of the course project in every unit by completing one section of the course project, and then you will add to it with the subsequent work in the following unit. This unit work will be in the form of unit mini projects.

Our course project will be to develop a document titled “A Permit by Rule (PBR) Evaluation for a Painting Operation” and will serve as a simulation of our work as a contract environmental engineer to an industrial organization planning a painting operation within the United States.

The Scenario:

You have contracted with an industrial organization to engineer and write a state air Permit by Rule (PBR) evaluation for a painting operation facility. According to the local state laws and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) laws, the facility must have an air permit before construction begins. Once the facility is completed, the construction air permit will then become the operational air permit for the facility.

As a result, your client wants the air permit to automatically align the painting operation facility into operational compliance with state and federal air quality laws. Consequently, it is extremely important for you to evaluate the planned painting operation against the PBR requirements in order to meet the air permit criteria, using the state guidance document and considering the equipment and chemicals already planned for the facility operations.

You have tabulated the following information from what you have gleaned from the material SDS documents and equipment technical data sheets plan (depending on your scenario selection, each “unit” represents a single aircraft, rail tank car, or vehicle):

Interior Liner Coating Material

10 gallons coating/unit 2 gallons of solvent/unit

Unit Lining Application Apply interior liners to two (2) units/day Work five (5) hours/day and four (4) days/week

Unit Lining Curing Cure interior liners of two (2) units/day Work five (5) hours/day and four (4) days/week

Interior Liner Cure Heater fuel source is natural gas-fired drying oven
