This course provides the students with information about water use in industry. For example, the following subjects are discussed: water sources in industry; industrial wastewaters - their sources, approaches to their treatment, legislation concerning their discharge, etc. The students are introduced into the problems of water management in the most water-intensive industries and in agriculture - lectures deal with such topic as water consumption, typical pollutants in wastewaters or suitable techniques of wastewater treatment in concrete industrial branches.
