Annotation -
Subject focuses on adoption of analytical methods serving for determination of operational, utility and legislative parameters and characteristics of solid, liquid and gaseous fuels. Students learn theories of fuels origin, their utilization and environmental impact. Students get familiar with properties, utilization and analysis of alternative fuels, especially FAME, bioethanol and hydrogen.
