On November 2, a group of Joliet Junior College (JJC) students visited Argonne National Laboratory for a presentation by Pressure/Energy Systems Engineer Dejan Ristic on the laboratory’s Sustainability Program and clean energy research.
The JJC students are part of an ecology and environment course, covering a broad selection of environmental issues and how they affect ecology in terms of human and natural world interactions. The students also focus on the economics, politics and social sciences behind these issues.
Ristic engaged students in discussion about alternative types of energy that are currently available, future technologies that Argonne scientists are working on now and sustainability efforts and infrastructure that Argonne has implemented on its site, with a focus on efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
