Education in systematic eco-innovation in environmental and process engineering

  • As engineering graduates and specialists frequently lack the advanced skills and knowledge required to run eco-innovation systematically, the paper proposes a new teaching method and appropriate learning materials in the field of eco-innovation and evaluates the learning experience and outcomes. This programme is aimed at strengthening student’s skills and motivation to identify and creativelyAs engineering graduates and specialists frequently lack the advanced skills and knowledge required to run eco-innovation systematically, the paper proposes a new teaching method and appropriate learning materials in the field of eco-innovation and evaluates the learning experience and outcomes. This programme is aimed at strengthening student’s skills and motivation to identify and creatively overcome secondary eco-contradictions in case if additional environmental problems appears as negative side effects of eco-friendly solutions. Based on a literature analysis and own investigations, authors propose to introduce a manageable number of eco-innovation tools into a standard one-semester design course in process engineering with particular focus on the identification of eco-problems in existing technologies, selection of the appropriate new process intensification technologies (knowledge-based engineering), and systematic ideation and problem solving (knowledge-based innovation and invention). The proposed educational approach equips students with the advanced knowledge, skills and competences in the field of eco-innovation. Analysis of the student’s work allows one to recommend simple-to-use tools for a fast application in process engineering, such as process mapping, database of eco-friendly process intensification technologies, and up to 20 strongest inventive operators for solving of environmental problems. For the majority of students in the survey, even the small workload has strengthened their self-confidence and skills in eco-innovationshow moreshow less
