Abstract: Although favorable energy situations presently exist, available fossil fuel sources of energy are limited and as a result there will be an increase in interest in requirements relating to the relationships of environment and energy production and use. The papers presented in this publication identify strategic environmental issues that impact related concerns within the civil engineering profession, for both the short term (5 year) horizon and the longer term extending to the end of the 20th century. Key industries to be impacted by emerging energy and environmental trends are the petrochemical, power and utility, and construction industries. Some specific areas of concern include coal gasification, emissions control, waste disposal, transportation, and government regulations.
