ECO FRIENDLY ENGINEERING
INTRODUCTION

Engineering is the discipline, art and profession of
acquiring and applying technical, scientific, and
mathematical knowledge to design and implement
materials, structures, machines, devices, systems, and

processes that safely realize a desired objective or
invention.

By its very nature engineering is bound up with society
and human behavior. Every product or construction used
by modern society will have been influenced by
engineering design. Engineering design is a very powerful
tool to make changes to environment, society and
economies, and its application brings with it a great
responsibility.

Engineering is a key driver of human development. The
attainment of many of the Millennium Development Goals
requires the achievement of sufficient engineering
capacity to develop infrastructure and sustainable
technological development.

But all inventions and designs of man have its pros and
cons. Many of the engineering activities like building
dams, extracting oil etc lead to the gradual deterioration
of environment. To make the engineering designs
environment friendly,

Eco-friendly engineering is focused on using engineering
principles to improve the quality of the environment.

Eco-friendly engineering is a multi-disciplinary field whose
focus is on maintaining or improving the quality of the
environment. This includes air quality, water quality, and
land/soil quality, and how human activities are
intertwined with quality. Environmental quality affects
public health, so eco-friendly engineering is a vital part of
system design.

What is eco-friendly engineering?

Engineers, who want to create products requiring less
energy to operate, develop new technologies that
generate clean power, reduce emissions of fossil fuel-
based engines, and better understand the global
ecosystem need eco-friendly engineering. Eco-friendly
engineering uses measurement and control techniques to
design, develop, and improve products, technologies, and
processes that result in environmental and economic
benefits.

While green is the focus today, eco-friendly engineering is
fundamentally no different than any other type of
engineering innovation in that designers must first
measure and understand real-world data and then correct
or fix the problem by designing the next generation of
products and technologies that achieve the desired goal.

Today, many of these goals are centered on improved
efficiency and reduced environmental impact. Some of
the common measurements include power quality and
consumption; emissions from vehicles and factories, such
as mercury and nitrogen oxides; and environmental data,
including carbon, temperature, and water quality.

Tools and technology advancements

In a recent article in The Economist, Linda Fisher, chief
sustainability officer at DuPont, emphasized the
importance of the first step in the engineering innovation
process. "We find with energy and greenhouse gases, if
