SusTech 2020 Technical Talk

Wednesday, January 15th, 2020

 

SusTech 2020 will host a technical talk on Feb. 10, 2020 at the conference Hotel, the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Santa Ana – Orange County Airport.

Dr. Vasilios I. Manousiouthakis of UCLA, will speak on “Analysis and Synthesis of Sustainable Systems”

The field of sustainability has traditionally suffered from a lack of specificity, that leads to misinterpretations regarding a system’s sustainability status. The newly introduced concept of “Sustainability Over Set” (SOS) is presented. The SOS concept readily allows the incorporation of human input into system sustainability assessment, by requiring the sustainability practitioner to develop/employ a mathematical model of the studied system, such as for example a set of ordinary differential equations whose solution captures the system’s dynamic behavior.

Dr. Vasilios I. Manousiouthakis is a Distinguished Professor, UCLA Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department, and the Director, Hydrogen Engineering Research Consortium (HERC)
