The Climate Change Laboratory acquaints students with selected pollutants arising from anthropogenic activities that contribute to climate change. The aim of the course is to master the basics of sampling, determination and capture of these pollutants contained in air and waste gases.
Aim of the course -
Last update: Hlinčík Tomáš doc. Ing. Ph.D. (13.01.2021)

Students will be able to: remove and determine individual pollutants in the air / flue gas / waste gas, characterize and select a suitable adsorbent, capture pollutants by adsorption.
