Environmental Engineering

Which of the CR4 headings would best cover environmental engineering e.g. air filtration ? Could we have a seperate category /

Got to be BioMech & BioMed

OR Civil OR Mechanical

depending on the real subject of the topic.

The best category would depend upon the purpose of the air filtration, as it is used in so many fields: Biomed applications? Automotive applications? Material Science applications? Mechanical Engineering applications? Electrical Engineering applications? Domestic Maintenance applications (rhetorical questions - NNTR)? Rather than use the metaquestion, as posted here, it would be better to place the real question in the appropriate category using as much background information as possible and take it from there. It would certainly be a lot quicker doing it that way.

I believe all disciplines of engineering has to take in to account the " environmental" atmosphere in which that design will reside in, hot or cold, wet or dry, direct sun light or dark enclosure, bundle together or free standing, clean air or volatile atmosphere, etc. Take your pick

And any environmental engineering questions that don't fit a specific engineering discipline would perhaps fit the category "Sustainable Engineering" would probably be close enough.

"Environmental Engineering" is a sub-discipline of Civil Engineering, as it covers the following categories: water treatment; wastewater treatment; stream, river, and lake morphology; solid waste/sanitation; HazMat; and air pollution, amongst other categories.

In many cases, the lines between Civil/Environmental engineering & Chemical Engineering are pretty much blurred when it comes to industrial and manufacturing process water and wastewater treatment. Even Mechanical Engineers get their finger in the pie.
