The Sustainable Development Goals Hub

Youth Participants

Preet Kang is a recent graduate from the University of Alberta with a degree in chemical engineering. Sustainable Development Goals she is in most passionate about include affordable and clean energy, responsible consumption and production, and climate action. 

She realizes that there is a significant yet complex challenge facing the energy industry – satisfying the world’s growing energy requirement while also working toward sustainability. Since the way energy is produced has a lasting effect on our world, the role of a chemical engineer has not only become one of providing energy to the world, but also proposing and implementing solutions for remediation as the impact on the environment becomes more significant. Preet is eager to face this challenge and is always seeking opportunities to explore innovative fields of green technology, especially since finishing her capstone project about biochar. She is also interested in exploring areas that increase the efficiency of fossil raw resource processes.
