A Sustainability Perspective on Choice of Method in Applied Science A Case Study of A Pulp and Paper Mill Wastewater Experiment

M. From-Aldaron


An experiment aimed at improving wastewater treatment energy efficiency is analysed with respect to possible outcomes using three hypothetical scenarios. Increasing the number of independent samples is contrasted with increasing the determination precision on a single sample and how this affects what is actually being investigated. In the case of engineering and apllied science this may affects the outcome of experiments and in the long run which technologies are further developed. This in turn, affects overall sustainable development.
