Emissions from Energy: Environment, Health, and Legislation - a presentation and round-table brown-bag discussion
A joint seminar between the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Geodetic Engineering and the John Glenn School of Public Affairs will be held in 410 Hitchcock Hall.
Stefan Åström - Chalmers University and IVL Swedish Environmental Research Institute Ltd., Gothenberg, Sweden

This seminar will begin with a presentation about the extent to which legislation has reduced the deposition in Sweden of sulfur and nitrogen from international sources, as well as suggestions for efficient future legislation architectures. The seminar will then transition into a round-table discussion about the impacts of emissions from the use of conventional and renewable energy and how the evolution of energy systems may be directed to better internalize and avoid the negative environmental and human health impacts.
