Annotation -
The course focuses on understanding the technological and chemical engineering tools applied in the field of air pollution control technology. It is the understanding of technological schemes and their application to the chemical technological operations leading to the separation of pollutants. Different environmental technologies are compared in terms of efficiency and also in terms of economic - investment and operational performance.
