Name:2nd International Conference on Environmental Geotechnology, Recycled Waste Materials and Sustainable Engineering (EGRWSE-2019)
Description:Conference website: http://serl.lab.uic.edu/egrwse-2019/ Sustainable Engineering is the process of using resources in a way that does not compromise the environment or deplete the materials for future generations. Sustainable engineering requires an interdisciplinary approach in all aspects of engineering. All engineering fields should incorporate sustainability into their practice for an improved quality of life. Furthermore, with the creation of the Sustainable Development Goals, engineers will continue to play a decisive role in their success. The necessity for environment-friendly technologies in the future will require the expertise of engineers. Therefore, the UNESCO Engineering Initiative (UEI) is working with partners to develop engineering curricula that incorporate sustainability as an overarching theme. The rapidly increasing population and rising living standards has caused the development of environmental geotechnology. When population increases, more land is needed; many soil deposits previously claimed to be unfit for residential housing and other construction projects are now being used. In a progressive society, rising living standards indicate an increase in industrial growth. Consequently, pollution of air, water, and land and urban refuse production becomes inevitable, thereby endangering the global environment. To cope with these problematic soil deposits and adverse environmental conditions, the present conventional construction technology requires, by necessity, a new direction. Problematic soil deposits on one hand and ground pollution problems on the other have challenged the current soil mechanics concepts and methods of analyzing soil behavior under varied environmental conditions. The environmental aspects of geotechnology have been expanded and their subsequent response to engineering behavior has paved way for the emergence of Environmental Geotechnology. Recycling is beneficial in many ways and it primarily helps protect the environment. This is because the recyclable waste materials would have been burned or ended up in the landfill. Recycling more waste means, we do not depend too much on raw (natural) resources, which are already massively depleted. However, use of recycled waste materials require an understanding of their properties and characteristics for their beneficial use as engineering and construction materials. EGRWSE-2018 conference marked a successful event on the state-of-the art research on sustainability, environmental geotechnics, and use of recycled waste materials for civil infrastructure. EGRWSE-2019 again aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results about all aspects of Geoenvironmental Engineering, Waste Management, and Sustainable Engineering. It also provides the premier interdisciplinary forum for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, practical challenges encountered, and the solutions adopted in this field.
