COURSE TITLE: Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS) Destruction in the US & Abroad
COURSE NO: C04-059
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Ozone Depleting Substances (ODS) Destruction in the US & Abroad
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course discusses the sources of ozone depleting substances (ODS) in the United States and abroad and defines the best practices for the safe, environmentally sound collection, recovery, transport, and destruction of these substances. In addition, this course explains the challenges associated with the safe destruction of ODS and assesses the costs for the ODS waste management process.

 

The Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer (Montreal Protocol), finalized in 1987, is a global agreement to protect the stratospheric ozone layer by phasing out the production and consumption of ODS.

 

While the global ODS phaseout is underway, a large amount of ODS is in equipment and products such as refrigerators and air conditioners (as refrigerant and foam blowing agent), foam contained in buildings, and fire protection systems and fire extinguishers, as well as in stockpiles held by countries and industrial and commercial users. Together these sources are referred to as ODS banks.

 

This 4 PDH online course is intended for environmental, sustainability, industrial, and mechanical engineers, as well as others interested in learning about the best practices for destruction of ODS.
Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Familiarizing with the sources of ODS
  • Learning about the best management practices regarding the process of ODS destruction
  • Familiarizing with ODS destruction technologies and facilities in the U.S. and worldwide
  • Gaining perspective and metrics on the international efforts to destroy ODS
  • Understanding the financial considerations of ODS recovery, transportation, and destruction costs
Course Document

COURSE TITLE: Algal Indicators in Streams
COURSE NO: H03-007
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Algal Indicators in Streams
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course summarizes the application of algae as indicators of nutrient pollution in water quality management. It describes the use of algal indicators to develop water quality diagnostics for nutrient pollution in the United States (U.S.) and then reviews scientific developments in the use and application of algal indicators across the world.

 

Algae are ubiquitous and essential components of all stream ecosystems. They are the primary energetic source for many stream food webs, fixing carbon from the atmosphere through photosynthesis, which is then transmitted through the web via consumer pathways.

 

Algae have a long history of use and possess many of the features valued in ecological indicators. They were part of the early saprobien indicator system development in Germany and were one of the first assemblages developed for use in biological assessment in the United States.

 

This 3 PDH online course is intended for chemical and environmental engineers and water quality professionals who are seeking to utilize algae to detect the presence of nutrient pollution and to estimate the risks of nutrient pollution in adversely affecting the condition of stream ecosystems.
Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Gaining general background information on algae
  • Familiarizing with the current algal sampling programs in the United States
  • Learning about the research on algal assessment and indicator using in streams
  • Identifying the quantitative and qualitative algal application methods
