Unit 3 case study | MEE 6201 – Advanced Pollution Prevention | Columbia Southern University
Select one of the products described in the eco-auditcase study in Chapter 8 of your textbook (ex. Coffee Make, p. 200 – 202). Using the data in the textbook (p.201) from the eco-audit, additional data from Chapter 15 (if necessary), and any additional resources that you find helpful, prepare a pollution prevention audit for the product that you have selected. Base your P2 audit on the steps shown in the Unit 3 Study Guide.
You do not need to use all of the P2 audit steps shown in the Unit 3 Study Guide, but use at least three major steps from each phase (a major step being Step 5 rather than Step 5.1). Since you will not be using all of the steps shown in the Unit 3 Study Guide, you may re-number them if you wish so that your audit proceeds sequentially without skipping numbers. Your audit should include an introductory paragraph explaining both the purpose of a P2 audit and the reasons for including the steps that you have selected.
Your case study must be at least two full pages in length. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations.
