Engineering 308 (Engr 308), Technology and the Environment, is a course taught at Humboldt State University, currently by instructor Lonny Grafman. See course content and past projects below.

Analysis projects

HSU straw analysis

2018: Partnered with HSU Office of Sustainability to analyze and compare the impacts of plastic, paper, bamboo, glass, and stainless steel straws in terms of dollars, CO2, and energy.  
HSU mason jar analysis

2016: Partnered with HSU Office of Sustainability and Dining Services to analyze the effects of the HSU policy regarding mason jars and disposables in terms of dollars, CO2, and energy. Compelling comparisons were created in order to educate and influence consumers.  
CCAT NZE study

2014: Partnered with CCAT to analyze the various energy uses of CCAT for their impacts (in dollars, energy, and carbon), as well as devising an implementable plan to ameliorate the impacts and to reach Net Zero Energy.  
Fuente Nueva waste project

2013: Partnered with Fuente Nueva spanish immersion charter school to analyze their waste, its impacts, and possible mitigation plans.  
Arcata bags

2012: Partnered with Humboldt Scrap to analyze the embedded energy and carbon in various reusable and single use bags in Arcata  
Dominican Republic alternative building analysis

2011: Partnered with the Dominican community of La Yuca to compare the cost, embedded energy and carbon between three building methods  
Arcata plastic bags

2010: Partnered with the City of Arcata to analyze the embedded energy and carbon in single use plastic bags in Arcata  
CCAT PV system energy analysis

2009: Teams partnered with: CCAT on their photovoltaic system, Papercrete vs. StrawBale and Environmental impact of clay vs lime; with RCEA on Street lighting Analysis); and a local business on Multi-Pure vs. Brita Analysis.  

Research projects

In 2010, we partnered with the Humboldt Bay Center for Sustainable Living and Danco to research and report on the following:
