Machine Learning is widely used for everything from data processing, facial recognition, and recommendation systems to real-time personalisation. The trend seems perfect until we recognise that humanity needs to tackle their self-created worst problem – case in point, environmental degradation.
Environmental engineering is a professional engineering discipline that takes from broad scientific topics like chemistry, biology, ecology, geology, hydraulics, hydrology, microbiology, and mathematics to create solutions that will protect and also improve the health of living organisms and improve the quality of the environment.
Researchers are making environment-friendly stone composites from are previously discarded from construction supplies or cutting of blocks. The new composite also uses polymers and natural stone slurry waste.
