The course deals with technological and chemico-engineering tools applied in the field of air protection technology . The process of greening the technology is based on the current scheme and the mass and heat balances . For individual process streams are considered the possibility of applying appropriate technical operations leading to the separation of pollutants. The specific examples are compared to various environmental technologies both in terms of efficiency and in terms of economic - investment and operational performance.
Aim of the course -
