Engineering Dimensions

March/April 2019


Engineering Dimensions is published bimonthly by Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO) and is distributed to all PEO-licensed professional engineers. The magazine provides information relevant to the practice of professional engineering and promotes awareness of the Professional Engineers Act and the activities of the association.


In this issue:   Our focus is on waste management. Although Canada is a world leader in environmental protection, we are not perfect: We annually lose or throw out 35 million tonnes of food, and many plastics in this country are not recycled, instead going to landfill or, worse, escaping the waste management system and contaminating our eco-systems. In this issue, we examine engineering solutions to food management as well as developing a circular lifespan for plastics in Canada.
