Software

The software listed below is intended to provide academia and industry a compilation of risk assessment software tools used by EPA, such as those for risk screening, hazard, exposure, and fate estimation. Most of these can be downloaded directly at no cost. This compliation also includes some commercially available risk assessment/pollution prevention tools. These tools can assist engineers in the prioritization, design, and selection of greener processes and products. Click here to read about the Green Process Design Software system. The tables below list software presented in the Green Engineering textbook: Green Engineering: Environmentally Conscious Design for Chemical Processes by David Allen and David Shonnard, as well as additonal software.
