Course objectives
At the end of the course students should be able to:
- understand the environemntal impact of anthropogennic technologies
- describe the main types of technologies which affect the environment
- understand the main technological principles for the providing of clean air, water tretment and purification, waste disposal
- characterize and discuss the principles of the best available techniques and best environemntal practices and also to the disposal of the persistent substances and waste with their contents
- know the methods applicable for the remediation of contaminated soils and sediments
